Mother (R2/UK BD) in September
Optimum Home Entertainment have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Mother on 20th September 2010. For his fourth film, writer and director Bong Joon-ho (Barking Dogs Never Bite, Memories of Murder & The Host) chooses to examine the simple figure of the mother.
Hye-ja is a single mother and her son is her world. Do-joon is 27 but has the mind of a child, he is naïve and completely dependent on his mother. When a young girl is found dead on the roof of a run down building, evidence is found that incriminates Do-joon and he is accused of the murder. An inefficient lawyer and an apathetic police force that closes Do-joon’s case too quickly inspire his mother to act on her own—to act as Mother in its purest form. Summoning all her maternal instincts and trusting no one, she sets out to find the killer and prove her son’s innocence.
