Mother (2009, MA 15+)

A single mother frantically tries to solve the murder of a teenage girl, believing the killer framed her mentally-handicapped son and that the police will do anything to avoid properly investigating their town. Driven by an acclaimed performance from the veteran actress Kim Hya-ja as the mother, a traditional apothecary, herbalist and acupuncturist, Bong invests Mother with suspenseful wit and tart insight into obsessive motherhood and the politics of small towns.
