Acclaimed filmmaker Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, The Handmaiden) returns with a visually stunning mystery interweaved with the complexities of forbidden love.
Seo-rae (an enigmatic Tang Wei Lust, Caution), is a Chinese immigrant and becomes the prime suspect in the death of her older husband, a South Korean immigration officer; it doesn’t go unnoticed that her application for citizenship was expedited. However, it’s love at first sight for a highly decorated and married detective Hae-joon (Park Hae-il, The Host) when he sees Seo-rae’s photo on the victim’s phone. With different perspectives, engaging characters and varied timelines Park weaves an intricate story exquisitely constructed, with a stream of revelations, some pulse-pounding action and continuous glimmers of wry humour. 

When this particular puzzle gets solved, it’s with a tour de force of reconstructive staging, up there with the artisan’s bravura of Parasite.
