Review

''Mom’s Song'' presents the life of a family. That doesn’t mean a dramatic family history will unfold. The biggest incident that happens to this family is that the father is planning to marry a young woman. The story revolves around this ‘incident’. Broken-hearted mother complains to her son Dongmin and drinks excessively out of anger after she met up with father. What is revealed during this process is the unavoidable ‘evidences’ of the family. The scenes where mother or Dongmin wearing mismatched socks or the overlapping image of father and Dongmin placing a flower in mother’s hair exhibit the sickening irony of family relationship. Another interesting aspect of this film is the casting. The film consists of three chapters and actor NOH Yoonjung plays the role of the mother in the second chapter while the director’s real mother plays the role herself in the first and third chapter. The director says that the film is about his family and the casting of his mother must be somewhat related. The film’s hyper reality or documentary elements may also have originated here.
