    The [#i_]WAILING[_i#] may seem like a complex mixture of religion, psychology, and horror. But it has a clear direction. As with Na Hong-jin’s debut film The Chaser(2008), the story features an outsider (Kunimura Jun) and seeks his true identity. Yet a series of complicated events make it difficult to guess at the essence. Or perhaps the director creates a chase only to wring and twist it to deconstruct various aspects of the village. Local policeman Jong-goo hears about a stranger from the mysterious woman who claims to have witnessed the crime. When his daughter Hyojin displays symptoms similar to other victims, he starts believing everything he sees. The arrival of another shaman, Il-gwang, further complicates people’s truths and lies. Na navigates bewteen simplicity and complexity to continue his cinematic imagination. [LEE Sang-yong]

Director

NA Hong-jin

Born in 1974. He has gained international recognition with his feature film debut The Chaser(2008) and follow up film The Yellow Sea(2010). His unique perspective and fully fleshed out the genre of ´Korean noir´ through his distinct visual style and bold touch. Relentless and sorrowful, this film explores in depth humans who are instinctively roused and corrupted by an unknown being who can neither be defined as real nor imaginary, good nor evil.
