Bong Joon-ho’s MOTHER Movie Trailer & Pictures
Check out the trailer and pictures for MOTHER starring Kim Hye-ja, Won Bin, and directed by Bong Joon-ho.
Mother looks like a really dark movie, but I really enjoyed the trailer. I think I might have to keep an eye out for it. There is just something very emotional about a mother fighting for her son’s freedom after he has been falsely imprisoned.
Mother is part of the Special Presentations lineup at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival. Watch the trailer and check out more pictures below.
Mother Synopsis: Kim Hye-ja plays the mother of a grown son with a slight mental disability. Childlike and slow to think through consequences, Do-joon (Won Bin) has grown up under the fierce protection of his mother’s formidable love. Never one to participate in the intrigues of their small town, she lives a quiet life as a traditional healer, providing herbs and acupuncture to neighbours while looking after her son.
Ah-jung is a pretty young student who seems to be the unfortunate guardian of the town’s worst secrets – reminiscent of Laura Palmer from David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. When she is brutally murdered and Do-joon is accused of the killing, it’s up to his mother to get him out of jail and prove his innocence.
