More info

Lee Jung-chool (Song Kang-ho) is a Korean police officer working for the Japanese, who is on a mission to reveal a Korean independence group. Korea has been, in fact, more than 15 years under the rule of Japan. As part of the task, he begins to meet up with Woo-jin (Gong Yoo) in his photographic studio which is just a front for Woo-jin’s illegal activity. But once Jung-chool gets to know the resistance group which includes some of his former friends, he begins to doubt the Japanese government and his loyalty. He now faces a crucial question: Should he be the hunter or the hunted? The Age of Shadows was a great success in South Korea and it was selected as the South Korean candidate for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Show more

Filmasia: The Wailing

More info

This mystery Korean horror proves that the old forces and curses can quietly but powerfully dominate even in the modern era. A small town, southwest from Seoul, has been living a quiet life. But one foggy morning a local police officer is rushed to a violent murder, unprecedented among the locals. This horrific crime is only the first in a series of murders. The killers are always family-related. They show symptoms of catatonia and are covered with an unknown skin disease. The cases are increasing and the police are helpless. The Wailing is the third eagerly awaited feature film by Na Hong-jin. His previous daring and atypical thrillers The Chaser (2008) and The Yellow Sea (2010) have made him popular among the elite of Korean directors closely monitored by international festivals.
