Pieta is most recent motion picture from remarkable and well known Korean chief Ki-duk Kim, known for such serene and emotional perfect works of art as 3-Iron, Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… furthermore Spring, Samaria and numerous more that I had no chance to watch yet. He is no more interesting to Cannes and Venice film celebrations, however this specific motion picture triumphed at Venice film celebration gaining most renown honor there, Golden Lion.
Pack Do (Jeong-jin Lee) exists in a little once sprouting mechanical region known for its sly metalworking, that now is setting down in neediness and is gradually being gulped by the enormous city. Individuals leave, and the ones that stay are not able to make a decent living. Pack Do is a merciless, coldhearted obligation gatherer for a neighborhood credit shark. One day he experiences a lady, who cases to his own mom whom surrendered him during childbirth. Supposing its an unfeeling joke, he rejects her claims, however she doesn’t let go and is diligent so in the long run after a few times passes they begin to bond together. Yet who she truly is? What are her explanations behind showing up so sudden?
As of late there has been enormous convergence of phenomenal Korean motion pictures whose focal topic spins around mother figure. Pretty much all the compelling Korean executives have made a motion pictures about it, for example, Mother, Poetry, Secret Sunshine. Which in itself is not an astonishment, considering that each living individual on the planet has a mother, so the story potential outcomes are truly broad. Presently it was Ki-duk Kim’s chance to make one.
It’s a distressing, and pitiful film, without any enduring bliss. Jeong-jin Lee’s character is merciless, coldblooded to his newly discovered mother, to banks, to himself. The world that raised him was coldblooded as well.
What snatched my consideration is intriguing cam work that was exhibit in the motion picture, pretty much all the shots were recorded with hand held cam, even the static close ups, which made for some precarious, and now and again unprofessional experience, which may be what executive was following.
Sick be fair, this so far is my slightest enjoyed Ki-duk Kim’s motion picture. While it was very desolate and ruthless, I felt it some way or another fail to offer that authenticity which I love in films, the inclination that such individuals exist and such occasions may transpire. It felt more like theater execution on the enormous scene with set pieces rather than genuine world out there. Perhaps it was proposed to be in a such manner, confined, out of this world experience like well known Michelangelo’s model Pieta, a craftsmanship to be shown and seen alone, without anyone else. To catch a minute of life.
