Mother is Korean crime/thriller movie staring won bin (the man from nowhere) a mentality disabled man who is charged with murdering a highschool girl, his widowed mother Kim hye ja (dear my friends) tries every thing to prove her sons innocence. Jin goo (DOTs) plays won bins friend.
All actors did an excellent job portraying their characters, it was an enjoyable suspense thriller.
Kim hye ja was the star of the movie, with Oscar worthy performance as the mother, overprotective and would do anything to prove her beloved son innocent.
The movie is thoroughly engaging with a solid plot point and many original twists,
All the details were well presented, a mothers sacrifice and how far she will take it will make you get gripped and you'll find the 2 hour movie engaging you won't even notice time.
8.6/10 this shampoo loved it
Movie quotes:
"It was revenge"
"Don't call your son an idiot!"

This is a movie that you will like or will drop in the first 30 minutes.
It has a touching story but somewhere they lack in something, it could have been an absolute masterpiece but somewhere and somehow they missed the right spot in their story.
The acting was very good and convincing, I felt anger, despair and sadness. The acting did fit in the way that they made this movie, their work with their camera's, the positions, the emotions, the characters and the music. I woulnd't call it unique but it is different it is not the same as most of the movies.
This movie isn't giving it all away, it makes you wonder and think also in the ending of the movie. The 'dilemma' of this mother is really understandable and somehow it isn't. It is a movie that could give yourself a conflict "what would I have done in this situation?" you might ask yourself in this movie, and because of this they scored alot of points in this movie i.m.o.
Watch this if you like movies that won't give you an immediate answer.
Skip this movie if you want an easy movie that give you all the information and ends without you left thinking about it.
