A Fierce Plight of Necessity (I)
Ambitious politician Jong-chan (Joo-hyuk Kim) and his supportive wife Yeon-hong (Ye-jin Son) suddenly find their teenage daughter Min-jin (Ji-hoon Shin) go missing after making her way to school. Jong-chan deduces it a mere school girl prank and prioritising his tough political campaign and power over family, Yeon-hong keeping up good wife appearances, tries to move calmly within circles of political scrutiny towards reasons for her daughter’s sudden absence. Consistently surrounded by her husband’s strong opposition candidate Jae-soon No (Eui-seong Kim) the latter’s entourage puts uncertain ‘conspiratorial’ belief to Yeon-hong that her missing daughter is some sort of political subterfuge on No’s behest. Unable to oblige Yeon-hong’s misgivings, the police inspector investigating Min-jin’s disappearance and Jong-chan are both tight lipped about No. But as days pass Yeon-hong’s serious concern soon turns to abject paranoia as she eventually learns from Mi-ok (Soo-hee Kim), a school friend of Min-jin, that her daughter was being violently bullied at school. Yeon-hong’s tenaciously personal investigation gets ever muddied as she additionally learns of odd inconsistencies of Min-jin’s school grades; Min-jin’s angry words and violent pictures of her home life in a personal diary and a cryptically woeful song Min-jin wrote with Mi-ok, all interplay great suspicion to Yeon-hong that her daughter isn’t the person she thought she knew. And when unearthing Min-jin and Mi-ok’s grave wrong upon two other’s ignorant plight, a massive dark revelatory secret puts Yeon-hong’s dignity, human trust and life into white hot turmoil. Especially when Min-jin is found dead in remote woodland.
Superficially said - a mystery whodunit than political scandal its chief expression here is personal human absurdity and revenge. And the absurd truth? A kooky ambiguous simile might shed some light. A prison officer in Silent Hill Downpour in a ghostly memory to protagonist Murphy Pendleton tells him ‘if you tell the truth Murphy, you don’t have to remember anything’. Quite wise perhaps. But in the absurdity of life a media campaign stymie could emerge where ‘quotes like this could be the reason for Alzheimer's disease’. Well that's absurd of course just like in The Simpson's Sideshow Bob cheating in a voting campaign with supporting votes from dead people and pets - but absurdity is key to The Truth Beneath.

A Fierce Plight of Necessity (II)
The Truth Beneath is a miasma of reckless necessity on Yeon-hong’s part as she desperately tries to find her daughter, investigating reluctant attitudes of indifference and hypocrisy from those around her and her ‘fight’ against husband, moody school teenagers, political aids and educators, that seem hived in some way to foil her plight, as if Yeon-hong’s fate was to be plunged into a dark deadly maze to battle the ‘Minotaur’ in the guise of fragments of said people and their imitative evils. Jong-chan’s deeds are of marital dishonour, parental neglect and a priority of corruptive political ambition over good will. Min-jin loathing her rich status due to isolation by other school kids and bullying and Mi-ok hating that her father works as a driver for Min-jin’s father. Its a grim jealous avenue where ignorance and fallacious characters are concerned, coveting false power and unhealthy desires and ‘victims’ having futile reparation by mimicking the worst weapon of social media trends - ‘revenge por~n’. And by negative jealous ricochets of sophisticated upbringing upon the less privileged Mi-ok, her dad and siblings, induce unnecessary misgivings about wealth and poverty - leading to treacherous unjustified interplay, riddled by unhealthy desires for revenge - a confused hateful jealousy that mirrors, but is excessively worse, the stupidly tame but initial wrong. Its all like using a blowtorch to quell a camp fire instead of wise foresight. Only Yeon-hong temporally holds on to sanity, until succumbing to her final broken choice. In other words a bit like The Simpson’s when the going gets tough.
It’s a worthy film and wouldn’t be a K-movie if all was people perfect. Ye-jin is certainly challenged as a reckless woman doing what any mother would do for the love of their child. But the cruel truth is a poison in this case. By the unfolding plot and fast paced editing Chan-wook Park soon comes to mind (a ‘revenge’ movie), Kyoung-mi once a student beneath PCW. The fast plot fastens the senses to its concerns and with a mirror of blithe ironic cruelty for it’s finality. At times brutal and although not exactly The League Of Gentlemen or The Simpson's episodes ‘Mayored to the Mob’ and ‘Sideshow Bob Roberts’, it’s reality bends to caricature idiosyncratic. Most disturbing though are the ‘walk on parts’ of irrational cute tech toys with probing eye cameras. Is The Eye of ignorance looking upon knowledge, or visa versa?
