About the Mother 💬

Mother (Hye-ja Kim) is a single mom to 27-year-old Yoon Do-joon (Won Bin). Her son is her raison d'être. Though an adult in years, Do-joon is naïve and dependent on his mother, and a constant source of anxiety, often behaving in ways that are foolish or simply dangerous. He is a constant source of anxiety for everyone.

One day a young girl is found dead in an abandoned building and Do-joon is accused of her murder. An inefficient lawyer and an apathetic police force that closes Do-joon's case too quickly inspire his mother to act on her own - to act as Mother in its purest form. Summoning all her maternal instincts and trusting no one, she sets out to find a killer and prove her son's innocence.

''Don't trust anyone. You go out and find the real killer...''

MOTHER is a murder mystery about a mother's primal love for her son.


Everyone has a mother, and everyone has a precise idea of what a mother is. This is the person that cherishes each of us most, who is the most gentle to us, and the most irritating. Many feelings collide on this issue. This is a person that we know well, and who is strong.

The relationship between a son and his mother is the basis for all human relationships.

Countless novels, films, and television programs have approached the mother figure, but I wanted to explore it for myself, and see where I could take it on the cinematographic level. And push it to the extreme.

I wanted to make a film that digs profoundly at what is extreme and powerful, like in the heart of a fireball. In this sense, MOTHER is a challenge for me because my preceding films were all stories that tended towards extension; if a murder allowed me to discuss the '80s in Korea, and a monster allowed me to speak about family and the United States, then MOTHER is quite the contrary. It is a film wherein all the forces converge at the heart of things. The figure of the mother has been seen before, it's very banal, but I see this as a new approach, and I hope it will be perceived that way. Like something that is familiar from home, but really came from abroad.
