Decision to Leave
A seductive and romantic mystery thriller in which a detective is investigating a man's death in the mountains.
Director: Park Chan-wook
Cast includes: Tang Wei, Park Hae-il
139 Mins / 2022 / South Korea, Subtitles
From a mountain peak in South Korea, a man plummets to his death. Did he jump, or was he pushed? When detective Hae-joon arrives on the scene, he begins to suspect the dead man's wife Seo-rae. But as he digs deeper into the investigation, he finds himself trapped in a web of deception and desire.
In this seductively twisted, modern romantic thriller, obsession is taken to wondrous and vertiginous extremes. The film’s dangerously handsome cinematography, as precise as it is playful, is full of layers and flipped mirror images: the truth is a slippery thing that is hard to pin down within the frame. Without a doubt one of the most electrifying minds working in cinema today, Park Chan-wook won the Best Director award at Cannes for his sumptuous, Hitchcockian masterwork.
