YesAsia Editorial Description

A brutal serial killer is on the loose, and it's up to two very different homicide detectives to catch him in Memories of Murder, a riveting police procedural from Bong Joon Ho, director of The Host and Mother. Based on an actual series of events that began in 1986, the film centers on a rural cop named Park Do Mang (Song Kang Ho, from The Host and Thirst) and his tense partnership with Inspector Suh Tae Yoon (Kim Sang Kyung, Turning Gate), a big city detective fresh from Seoul.

Detective Park, who'd much rather spend his time beating confessions out of suspects than be forced to do any actual detective work, mocks Suh, telling him that real Korean cops "investigate with their feet," not their intellect. But as the bodies begin to pile up, the two realize they have to reconcile their differences to stop the killer before he strikes again. However, with numerous leads that seemingly go nowhere, is there any chance they'll catch their man and finally put him behind bars? Or will their unceasing quest for justice actually push these heroes to their absolute breaking point?

Unravel the truth in Memories of Murder, winner of Best Film, Best Director (Bong Joon Ho) and Best Actor (Song Kang Ho) at South Korea's Grand Bell Awards! Featuring performances by Kim Roi Ra, Song Jae Ho, Park No Shik, and Byun Hee Bong, this is one gripping crime thriller that's more than just another whodunit!

This edition comes with audio commentary, character and case featurettes, deleted scenes with commentary, art direction and CG featurette, press conference, previews, and other special features.

Synopsis

연쇄살인 실화극 1986년 시골마을, 두 형사에겐 모든 것이 처음이었다. 당신은 지금 어디에 있는가 미치도록 잡고 싶었다. 당신은 누구인가 미치도록 잡고 싶었습니다. 당신은 누구십니까

1986년 경기도. 젊은 여인이 무참히 강간, 살해당한 시체로 발견된다. 2개월 후, 비슷한 수법의 강간살인사건이 연이어 발생하면서 사건은 세간의 주목을 받기 시작하고, 일대는 연쇄살인이라는 생소한 범죄의 공포에 휩싸인다.

사건 발생지역에 특별수사본부가 설치되고, 수사본부는 구희봉 반장(변희봉 분)을 필두로 지역토박이 형사 박두만(송강호 분)과 조용구(김뢰하 분), 그리고 서울 시경에서 자원해 온 서태윤(김상경 분)이 배치된다. 육감으로 대표되는 박두만은 동네 양아치들을 족치며 자백을 강요하고, 서태윤은 사건 서류를 꼼꼼히 검토하며 사건의 실마리를 찾아가지만, 스타일이 다른 두 사람은 처음부터 팽팽한 신경전을 벌인다. 용의자가 검거되고 사건의 끝이 보일 듯 하더니, 매스컴이 몰려든 현장 검증에서 용의자가 범행 사실을 부인하면서 현장은 아수라장이 되고, 구반장은 파면 당한다.

수사진이 아연실색할 정도로 범이은 자신의 흔적을 남기지 않는다. 살해하거나 결박할 때도 모두 피해자가 착용했거나 사용하는 물품을 이용한다. 심지어 강간 사일의 경우, 대부분 피살자의 몸에 떨어져 있기 마련인 범인의 음모 조차 단 하나도 발견되지 않는다. 후임으로 신동철 반장(송재호 분)이 부임하면서 수사는 활기를 띠기 시작한다. 박두만은 현장에 털 한 오라기 남기지 않는다는 점에 착안, 근처의 절과 목욕탕을 뒤지며 무모증인 사람을 찾아 나서고, 사건 파일을 검토하던 서태윤은 비오는 날, 빨간 옷을 입은 여자가 범행대상이라는 공통점을 밝혀낸다.

선제공격에 나선 형사들은 비오는 밤, 여경에게 빨간 옷을 입히고 함정 수사를 벌인다. 그러나 다음날 아침 돌아오는 것은 또다른 여인의 끔찍한 사체. 사건은 해결의 실마리를 다시 감추고 냄비처럼 들끊는 언론은 일선 형사들의 무능을 지적하면서 형사들을 더욱 강박증에 몰아넣는데.

Professional Review of "Memories of Murder (Blu-ray) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)"

April 17, 2008

This professional review refers to Memories Of Murder (2003) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
A suprisingly powerful film from the director of the amusing Barking Dogs Never Bite, this film about a serial killer has the tone of Se7en but without the weirdness. More importantly, Memories of Murder has addressed the debate about integrity in police methods with the greatest effectiveness since Orson Welles made Touch of Evil. Song Kang-ho (JSA, The Foul King) is, as always, dynamite as the cop who is obsessed with this case.

Every Korean who sees this film knows, even if I didn't, that this is based on a true story (and from what I can tell is scrupulously faithful to the real events), so there's no reason for you not to know (even if I didn't). The interplay between the city cop and the country cops is well-balanced, and the pacing is sleekly maintained to keep you on the edge of your seat as it works the thriller atmosphere and keeping an aura of authenticity.

Not just the best Korean film of the year, or the best film of the PIFAN festival (though it actually didn't appear in the festival program), but one of the great films of 2003. Certainly the best Korean film since JSA and ... enough superlatives already... this is a ripper and not to be missed if you get the chance!

tailored for western market Customer Review Rated Bad 2 - 2 out of 10
This film seems to be promising in the beginning but you'll soon find that it is just like watching another of those Hollywood movie with sex and violence as its theme. What a waste of time.

Fantastic! Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
This film is classy, gripping, wonderfully acted, illustrates superb cinematography and is one of the very best movies of its genre....not only in Korea, but the world. I am gradually introducing my friends to the glory that is Korean cinema because at the moment they are missing out on loads of fabulous gems...this film is no exception. Highly recommended!

A monumental achievement! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This review is actually based on the 2-Disc Korean Edition. Regardless, you should see this film in whatever format necessary.

With Memories of Murder, Bong Joon-Ho (continuing his winning streak with The Host) has crafted one of the most effective thrillers in recent memory. Based on true accounts of Korea's first documented serial killer, Memories of Murder follows two detectives (Song Kang-Ho and Kim Sang-Kyung) during a culturally tumultuous time in South Korea's history as they try to solve a series of murders. Bong rightly decides not to offer a proposed solution (i.e., identifying a killer), but instead focuses on a series of red herrings, culminating in a heartbreaking ending shot that implicates everyone who sees the film. Unlike more mainstream serial killer films like Silence of the Lambs and Seven (both good films in their own right), Memories of Murder does not dwell on a crazed individual on the fringes of society, but instead alludes to an individual who is so ordinary, he cannot be described. What is truly scary is that most killers are not Hannibal Lecter-esque. They are ordinary people that we might see on the street.

See this film by any means necessary. Aside from a relentlessly disturbing atmosphere and score, Bong Joon-Ho and the whole cast did a fantastic job in treating the subject matter with respect and restraint, while never undermining the severity of the events.

NO.1 KOREAN MOVIE !!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
For me this is the most enjoyable korean movie you can see, based on true events (very accurately too) of serial killings that went on for many years and at a time when the government didn't have any recources to offer the policemen on the case, it shows how the officers involved had very little experience with serial killings, one of them trying to get any criminal he can find to confess, another who resorts to beating the suspects and a new policeman on the case who introduces the idea of using psychology to catch the killer. It concentrates very heavily on the characters of the film and is very funny at times due to the streak of dark humour, it also has a very realistic feel that puts you there, so unless you are an action junkie who has no time for depth, if there is only one korean movie you get to see you have to see memories of murder.
