Madeo * Joon-ho Bong (2009)

Posted in drama, thriller on by .

The young man Do-joon is not 100% perfect mentally, but his overly protective mother (the “mother” from the international title) does not always seem to be either. When Do-joon is framed for a murder, his mother goes to the utmost to get him free. That sounds a bit like one of those far-Eastern bloody revenge thrillers, but “Madeo” is nothing like that. Actually, “Madeo” is more of an absurdistic comedy with black humour and then layered with drama and thriller elements. I found the film a good laugh and a surprising and enjoyable film.
