About the film
Runtime: 131 mins
Director: Joon-ho Bong
Actors: Song Kang-ho, Kim Roi-haAustralian Premiere Cinema Season - Moving from atmospheric mystery to political allegory, with pit stops into slapstick comedy along the way, Bong Joon-ho’s Memories of Murder remains impossible to categorize. The director’s breakthrough feature (he would go on to direct The Host, Snowpiercer, and last year’s Parasite, among other films) has lost none of its power to unsettle, and today it feels even stranger than ever.
The story follows three cops - inept provincial detective Park (Song Kang-ho), his hotheaded and violent partner Cho (Kim Roe-ha), and Seoul-trained, levelheaded pro Seo (Kim Sang-kyung) - as they investigate the grisly rapes and ritualistic killings of local women in small-town South Korea in 1986.
Based on a true story. After experiencing this modern cult classic on the cinema screen we urge you to discover the shocking events that have transpired since the Oscar-winning director first released Memories of Murder.
