SYNOPISIS:In his youth, Byung-su (Sul Kyung-gu, The Merciless, 1987: When the Day Comes) was a ruthless serial killer, but now he’s fallen prey to foes every bit as vicious as his younger self: old age and Alzheimer’s. Having long since given up his hobby of removing from society those he felt unworthy of life, the former murderer has settled into a quiet existence looking after a daughter (Seol-hyun, Gangnam Blues) who has no knowledge of his heinous crimes. While a diary helps Byung-su recall his colourful past, the present is becoming increasingly fractured as his memory fails. When a new murderer appears in town, a chance encounter sees the old killer quickly recognise one of his own kind, but when this new threat makes his daughter the next target, remembering has become a matter of life and death…

DIRECTOR: Im Sang-soo
RUNNING TIME: 112mins

SYNOPSIS:Anti-government protests provide the stimulus for Im Sang-soo’s romantic drama that charts a love affair across the years. In The Old Garden, we first meet activist Hyun-woo as he’s released from prison after a 17-year stint. Years of cramped, often solitary, confinement have seemingly taken their toll on Hyun-woo, who appears to find difficulty communicating with his family, but in actuality the man’s mind is in another place. Journeying back to the village where he spent some time as a fugitive he recalls the time spent with Yoon-hee, a woman who gave him shelter and companionship. While the time spent together was curtailed by Hyun-woo’s commitment to his political ideology, it seems Yoon-hee never forgot him, and amongst the letters and diaries that recount the time following his arrest, an even greater gift is waiting to be found.

The film comes courtesy of a novel by Hwang Sok-yong, one of Korea’s most celebrated novelists and a political activist in his own right who, like Hyun-woo, spent time in prison for violating the National Security Law.
