Belfast - The Truth Beneath

Truth Beneath
Film info

Director: Lee Kyoung-mi
Cast: Son Ye-jin, Kim Joo-hyuk
103mins, 2015

Lee Kyoung-mi made a strong impression with her acclaimed feature debut Crush and Blush that was produced by Park Chan-wook, and eight years later she returns with a similarly innovative and daring film co-written by Park. This time, however, the film tackles the theme of local politics as it follows the wife (Son Ye-jin) of an aspiring politician (Kim Joo-hyuk) who is determined to find their missing daughter who disappeared on the first day of a national election campaign. But with her husband more interested in his own political career, she takes matters into her own hands. The film’s unusual but intelligent narrative structure and mesmerising performance by Son Ye-jin is sure to leave a lasting impression.
