Memories of Murder 2003

Movie Rating:


The story opens with the discovery of a body in a ditch. The two local detectives start to investigate the case using their normal instincts and they don't know how to handle this type of cases. With the arrival of detective Kim Sang-Kyung, the investigation of this murder mystery begins to unfold.


It tells the true story of Korea's first serial killer who raped and murdered his victims during the mid 80's. There are no words to express Bong's craftsmanship, He forces you to speculate on finding the identity of the killer. Bong's clever style of ending the movie still fascinates me and till date this is the best Korean movie I have ever seen in my life. This movie has everything that you wish to have in a movie, engaging performances, thoughtful script and the perfect combo of music & visuals. Overall, it's a highly recommended movie and  will not disappoint you in any manner.

Verdict : Brilliant
