A brutal serial killer is on the loose, and it's up to two very different homicide detectives to catch him in Memories of Murder, a riveting police procedural from Bong Joon-Ho, director of 2000's Barking Dogs Never Bite. Based on an actual series of events that began in 1986, the film centers on a rural cop named Park Do Mang (Song Kang-Ho, from The Foul King and Joint Security Area) and his tense partnership with Inspector Suh Tae-Yoon (Kim Sang-Kyung, from Turning Gate and Tale of the Cinema), a big city detective fresh from Seoul.
Detective Park, who'd much rather spend his time beating confessions out of suspects than be forced to do any actual detective work, mocks Suh, telling him that real Korean cops "investigate with their feet," not their intellect. But as the bodies begin to pile up, the two realize they have to reconcile their differences to stop the killer before he strikes again. However, with numerous leads that seemingly go nowhere, is there any chance they'll catch their man and finally put him behind bars? Or will their unceasing quest for justice actually push these heroes to their absolute breaking point?
Unravel the truth in Memories of Murder, winner of Best Film, Best Director (Bong Joon Ho) and Best Actor (Song Kang Ho) at South Korea's Grand Bell Awards! Featuring performances by Kim Roi Ra, Song Jae Ho, Park No Shik, and Byun Hee Bong, this is one gripping crime thriller that's more than just another whodunit!
