Review

The floor is covered with blood, and the sinister sawing continues. The mother exhales her long-held breath before calling out to her son Hyeongtae. There is a birthday cake in front of her. Moving back and forth between the past and the present and between imagination and reality, the film boldly depicts a family traumatized by violence. The flashbacks that intrude upon the drab reality show a chain of violent encounters between Hyeongtae and his elder brother Jintae. The director incessantly places the mother at the center of the tragedy. She turned a blind eye to the acts of violence before. Now, what choice will she make in the midst of the repetitive cycle of violence? Her acquiescence has already robbed them of the golden hour, and guilt alone cannot redeem the past buried in darkness. [YOU Soonhee]
