Recently divorced, Yoo Rim now lives with her only daughter, Eun Ah. Upon arriving at her new school, Eun Ah is frequently picked on, though she has feelings for classmate Jo Han. One day she is brutally raped by Jo Han and his friends who threaten to upload footage of the rape online to keep her quiet. Unable to cope with the trauma she was forced to endure, Eun Ah takes her own life. As all of the boys involved in the rape are still minors, the law is helpless to prosecute them to the fullest extent possible, and they walk away with little more than a slap on the wrist. Filled with frustration and anger, Yoo Rim sets out to make the boys' lives a living hell. As Yoo Rim's animosity and exasperation is transformed into ever more brutal acts of revenge, she is brought closer and closer to the edge of insanity.
Cast & Credits
Amazing movie. According to the fact that I don't watch other movies like this on a daily basis (the genre stands pretty far away from my taste, but that's probably going to change from now on), I think it's a huge word for me to state that it's amazing, but it really is. Even though I didn't really understand all the words, just a few that I've learned from watching other films, dramas or variety shows, it really affected me emotionally. I teared up several times while watching it and it made me think a few things over, causing me to hug my mother a few minutes after it ended.
The story is really sad and it's terrifying to know that these situations happened in real life, not only once or twice. The cast is another thing; you can clearly see who's a senior to who. I think I can point it out that the best actor or actress in this movie is Yoo Sun. It's incredible how much emotion she brings to her character. As for the main person who lead me to this movie, Dongho, I'm also satisfied. A bit of practice and he's going to turn out an incredible actor, I'm telling you. The music gave me chills several times during the film, especially the intense piano sounds and such.
Overall, I think this is way far the best film of 2012, and not only in Korea.
Firstly, the story line was not how I expected it to be, I truly felt the connection between the mother and her daughter. I almost felt as though I was in her situation and I could feel her pain... the story line was truly amazing.
Secondly, the acting standard was truly of the highest. The mother was truly one of the best actors I have probably watched, I mean I actually felt the woman's pain. The bad guys seriously I've never actually hated a character as much as these. I even felt connected with the cop. THAT'S HOW GOOD THIS FILM IS!!!
Lastly, I would watch it again because it was a master piece, and now is one of my favourites! I recommend it to EVERYONE.
