A young girl is caught up in the 1980 Gwangju massacre, where Korean soldiers killed hundreds, if not thousands, of protesters who opposed the country’s takeover by the military the year before. Flashbacks show the girl seeing her mother shot to death in the massacre. The film spurred the Korean public to demand the truth behind the incident, and their government eventually opened previously classified files on the massacre.
A strange murder mystery tale about a lady who asks a forgery artist (Hiroyuki Sanada) to forge a series of rare bondage / torture paintings for her. Upon discovering that the client was actually the original model in those paintings, he murders her. The first half of the film focuses on all of the main characters, including the buildup to the crime. There is not much mystery here as they clearly show how, when & where the crime was committed. Then the movie goes on with how the investigation takes place – led by Kogoro Akechi (which by the way, happens to be Japan’s most recognized ‘super detective’ on par with Sherlock Holmes). There is also a lot of erotic bondage and nudity in this film, making it borderline pinku. However, the bondage scenes are mostly quite short, used instead to depict the strange offbeat feel to the film.
