MIFF – The Unjust

“Achieves a happy marriage between commercial savvy and artistic integrity in its hard-hitting depiction of Seoul as a city of corruption.” – Hollywood Reporter

A massive critical and commercial success in South Korea, The Unjust is a complex crime thriller, set against the background of police and corporate corruption in contemporary Seoul.

The Unjust movie posterI thought I picked something else but was very happy with the end result. This like the US series “Law and Order” but with :

In the South Korean Criminal Justice System the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important groups.
The police who investigate crime, somewhat dubiously, and work for one criminal gang and the Prosecutors who prosecute the offenders or don’t because they work for another criminal enterprise . This is their story.

This is a accessible and suspenseful crime drama that I enjoyed watching. This film did not include Hollywood cliches about a love interest, the male bonding or a one dimensional rogue cop. The Hollywood Reporter quote gets it.
