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.

  1. If you like Bong, you HAVE to check out Tokyo!

    I can’t wait for the dvd.

    I think it comes out June 30 (www.tokyothemovie.com).
    I preordered it on Amazon, through the site. I can’t wait.
    Better that NY Stories. Best tryptich since Amorres Perroes.

  2. I love TOKYO too. I had the thrilling time of watching it at AFI last year in LA. I was in the will call line... just hoping to get in... and I did!
