YesAsia Editorial Description

The Uninvited director Lee Soo Yeon delves into the psychology of a doctor who is terrified of his killer neighbors in her second feature Bluebeard. Jo Jin Woong (The Handmaiden) delivers a refined portrayal of a paranoid physician who gets entangled in a serial murder case involving an old man and his butcher son, played by veteran Shin Goo (Shoot Me in the Heart) and Kim Dae Myung (Pandora), respectively. Co-starring Song Young Chang (Veteran), Lee Chung Ah (Northern Limit Line) and Yoon Se Ah (A Man and a Woman), the suspense thriller was selected to screen at the 2017 Udine Far East Film Festival, the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival and the Hawaii International Film Festival.

After the shutdown of his clinic, divorced doctor Seung Hoon (Jo Jin Woong) moves to a small town where he works as a contract doctor at a hospital. During a colonoscopy, his sedated landlord patient (Shin Goo) murmurs something about a murder case, which reminds him of the headless female corpse recently found in a river. Seung Hoon, who is a crime fiction enthusiast, keeps looking for clues and discovers a woman's severed head in the butcher shop run by his landlord's son (Kim Dae Myung).

This edition comes with a 16-page photobook and five postcards.

Professional Review of "Bluebeard (2DVD) (Limited Edition) (Korea Version)"

February 26, 2018

Lee Soo-yeon isn't exactly the most prolific of filmmakers, the Korean writer director's last feature having been her debut way back in 2003, the popular Gianna Jun-starring ghost story The Uninvited. Lee finally returns fourteen years later with Bluebeard, a psychological thriller headlined by actor Jo Jin-woong (The Handmaiden) as a troubled doctor who becomes involved in a serial murder case when dismembered bodies and severed body parts start turning up, driving the poor man dangerously close to the edge. Having set a new box office record for a domestic March release, the film screened at a number of festivals around the world, including the Udine Far East Film Festival, the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival and the Hawaii International Film Festival.

Jo Jin-woong plays Seung-hoon, a doctor who is forced to relocate to a commuter town hospital after his fancy clinic in Seoul goes bankrupt, now divorced and living above a butcher shop. The film kicks off with the discovery of a body (a headless torso, to be more precise) in the Han River, which floats to the surface after having been trapped under the winter ice, thought by police to be part of an ongoing serial murder case. Seung-hoon soon becomes involved after his elderly landlord and butcher shop neighbour (Shin Goo, Righteous Ties) comes to visit him as a patient, and seems to confess to the crimes while under sedation, inspiring the doctor to start an investigation of his own. A fan of detective novels, he sneaks into the man’s house and finds the severed head of a woman, the finger of suspicion pointing at his odd butcher son Sung-geun (Kim Dae-myung, Pandora).

Although its premise might not sound particularly original, Bluebeard is actually quite different to other Korean serial killer thrillers, Lee Soo-yeon putting the emphasis on atmosphere and psychological chills. The film is far more concerned with traditional murder mystery-style twists and turns rather than visceral shocks, and despite the subject matter Lee largely steers clear of showing anything too graphic, a handful of nasty moments aside. The tension comes mainly from the viewer trying to guess who the killer is, and Lee does a good job in this regard, at least for those who don’t mind manipulation and misdirection, which the film has plenty of and which can at times get a little much. Still, there’s fun to be had in going along for the ride, and the film comes across as pleasingly old-fashioned rather than too contrived, with a few genuine (and sometimes confusing) surprises along the way.

The other thing which might put some viewers off is the fact that the film is very slow moving, and definitely requires a fair amount of patience, Lee being in no hurry whatsoever to get to its main revelations. Though never dull, the film does spend a lot of time simply following around Seung-hoon as he gradually joins the dots and with there being no real set pieces or suspense scenes to break things up, it’s perhaps not one for those looking for an action-packed, chase-filled thriller in the usual manner. As with The Uninvited, which was similarly slower and far more sober and sombre than other ghost films of the time, Lee here goes for a deliberate and thoughtful approach, pushing the viewer to try and pick up on small background details and subtle hints. At the same time, though some of its plot twists are a bit far-fetched, the film generally has a grounded air, thanks largely to Jo Jin-woong's excellent lead performance, which really helps to tie things together and to anchor things when it gets crazier during the final stretch.

For viewers comfortable with the leisurely pace and the absence of popcorn thrills, Bluebeard has a lot to offer as a refreshingly different kind of Korean serial killer film, complex and multi-layered, if perhaps a little too convinced of its own cleverness. As with The Uninvited, Lee Soo-yeon succeeds in serving up which bucks genre trends, and with there being few female directors working in mainstream Korean cinema, it has to be hoped that she won't wait another fourteen years to make her next film.

Pay Attention Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
*I got the Hong Kong version for the popcorn deal and the English subtitles are good*

I'm not quite sure what the title refers to but this film is kept in a somewhat dim atmosphere. I don't quite mean the lighting but it fits the mood of the film. A doctor divorced from his wife takes turns each week to spend time with their son. The doctor befriends a butcher that lives in the same building who also owns a shop just below their residence. After a night of drinks with the butcher. The doctor doesn't remember going home as he awakes from a morbid dream of finding a head in a bag that appears in his freezer. A tale of suspense and fear follows as the butcher could be a murderer. The doctors ex-wife disappears a few days after she visits him in his apartment, a nurse from his clinic who visited him at his apartment goes missing the next day. The police and a retired inspector gets involved. Was sung hoon right all along and could he be next?
