Memories of Murder (2003)

2003 Memories of Murder Salinui chueok 살인의 추억 Movie Film Cinema Poster ArtBased on a true case involving the murders of several women between 1986-91 in provincial South Korea, Memories of Murder follows the investigation by the local police force.

Bong Joon-Ho’s remarkable film, marked by incongruous comedy, takes us beyond the details of the investigation to construct a portrait of a society displaying its fractures and fears.

The acting, directing, sets and photography in this film are outstanding, as is the story. One of the best serial killer films we have seen.


You can find more information on this South Korean movie on Wikipedia and IMDb.

As always, we recommend you don’t ruin any surprises by reading spoilers or watching this trailer:
