Bong Joon-ho's latest work starring Won Bin

Four years since Tae Guk Gi, and Won Bin still has it. He makes a thrilling comeback in the film Mother directed by Bong Joon-Ho. In this film, Won Bin plays a mentally challenged individual who is falsely accused of murder. His mother, played by Kim Hye-ja, persistently fights to find the killer that framed her son. This film is a telling story of a mother's love for her son, despite the challenges, despite the impossibilities.

Mother premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival on May 16, 2009.

This is the third time director Bong Joon-ho has been at the festival. His previous times have been for his work in Toyko! and his film The Host.

    I preordered it on Amazon, through the site. I can’t wait.
