Madeo (2009)

A mother desperately searches for the killer who framed her son for a girl's horrific murder.

Quite to similar to the director's Salinui chueok this movie is another mesmerizing study of Korean smalltown community in all it's complexities, personified by the morally ambiguous desperate mother, perfcetly performed by Hye-ja Kim.

Maltin***1/2: "Gripping tale...More than a mere whodunit, this multilayered story also evokes life in a tight-knit community with all its alliances, prejudices, and corruption.Kim gives a riveting performance as the desperate mother."
