What to make of this remake? It is the best movie I have seen in years. To me, this is better than the Japanese one. Take the ending, the male character who confessed is asked by the female lead, why he did it. In the Japanese version, he cries unabashedly, in this Korean version, his tears quietly flow.
Rare is a film that tugs at one's brain and heart at the same time. Yes, it is a tearjerker but the way the detective uncovers layer upon layer of evidence leading him to cast suspicion on his mathematician friend is feast for the brain.
Highly recommended. Ten out of ten stars.
