Memories of Murder

Memories of Murder (2003)

 

A quiet country town becomes the hotbed of an investigation for an elusive psychopath. Two cops, with different professional backgrounds, join hands to track down the killer. Inspired by a string of true events from South Korea of 80s, ‘Memories of Murder’ gathers steam at a low pace (like most South Korean thrillers) but eventually turns out to be an immaculate study in character development. Movie has minimal violence as most death scenes don’t happen on screen. The climax and the postlude scenes could stay with the viewer for a long time.

My rating: ****1/2
