"The Truth Beneath" is a film that talks about violent revenge.
When a politician's daughter is losing, the scandal threatens to change his ambitions for a major election. We soon find that mother-daughter relationships are not so great when Min-jin resides in who is doing his homework.
Instead of starting an investigation, Jong-chan is more concerned about the election victory. He is left to his mother, Yeon-cheong, to look for its daughter. Things take a tragic turn when your daughter's body is discovered dumped in forests ...
After this point the film provides a certain interactivity, as the objective of distinguishing the truth from the lies, already in the flashbacks, we see how the relationship between Min-jin and Mi-OK was in the past and present. What was interesting was how their relationship was affected by the corrupt adult world. He also showed that for all his recent modern developments there are still many traces of the Chung-hee dictatorship in present-day Korea. For those looking for a good weekend movie, "The Truth Beneath" is a suggestion.
