Hirokazu Kore-eda | South Korea | 2022 | 12 | 129 mins | Korean | Trailer
An intertwined tale of a young mother forced to give up her new-born child for adoption who inadvertently becomes involved with ‘brokers’ who steal and sell babies to the highest bidder. Written and directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda with his usual mix of drama and comedy; he choreographs another unconventional group of disparate characters, this time played by an ensemble of South Korean actors led by Song Kang-ho (Parasite) who won the Jury Prize at Cannes for this role. Who else apart from Kore-eda could get us to love a group of child-trafficking criminals?
