I was perusing Twitter yesterday when I found out some great news for Korean film fans (and fans of great cinema in general) in London: the Terracotta Film Club will screen Bong Joon-ho’s film “Mother” on March 26th. Here’s the PR:
With Mother’s Day approaching on 30 March, we thought what better time to screen Bong Joon-ho’s 2009 Hitchcockian murder mystery, MOTHER.
Featuring a heartrending performance from Kim Hye-ja as a doting, determined mother who takes things a little too far, when she sets out to solve a murder case and prove her mentally fragile son’s innocence. Darkly humorous, with genre defying twists and a striking, visual style.
Director Bong Joon-ho (THE HOST, MEMORIES OF MURDER) has become one of South Korea’s most interesting and exciting filmmakers. Catch MOTHER ahead of the release of his next film – the highly anticipated, dystopian sci-fi thriller, SNOWPIERCER.

I recently reviewed the film and gave it a 4/5, calling it “a satisfyingly complex film.” It really is an intriguing film and one worth delving into.
Why not take your mother to see it on the run up to Mother’s Day for a cinematic treat and a remind her that while Mother’s Day is her day, the rest of the year her job is to look after YOU at any cost! 😉 That was a joke, by the way. Be nice to your mother, you only get one.
