Synopsis

London Korean Film Festival presents Recalled (dir. Seo You-Min).


After a fall, Soo-jin (Seo Yea-ji) wakes up in hospital with a serious head injury that has left her with no memory of who she is or how she came to be there. As she goes back home with her solicitous husband Ji-hoon (Kim Kang-woo) - whom she also does not remember - to their high-rise apartment, her inability to recall the past is irrationally offset by apparent clairvoyant powers that enable her to see what is about to happen. All of which will lead her gradually to look at her present situation and relations with different, suspicious eyes.


Like a smarter riff on Rowan Joffe's Before I Go To Sleep (2014), Seo You-min's amnesia thriller uses deftly handled, superbly unpredictable twists to paint a portrait of a woman lost, traumatised and gas-lit, but on the wild, rocky road to recovery.


The London Korean Film Festival (LKFF) is the UK’s leading showcase of Korean cinema, and the largest Korean Film Festival in Europe. The festival has introduced premiere screenings of major blockbusters to UK cinema screens while also incorporating the most engaging Indie hits, Women's Voices, Documentary, Animation, Shorts, Classics and more within its diverse programme. Now in its groundbreaking 16th edition, LKFF celebrates the global success of Korean cinema with a special focus on the extraordinary career of recent Oscar winner Youn Yuh-jung.
