A Hard Day (2014) MIFF Review


Korea 111 Mins

Gun-su is a policeman in a corrupt system who hits a person on his way home, under the influence, from his mother’s funeral. Aware of the severity, he takes great measures to cover it up, but it turns out he is covering up an awful lot more.

I loved it. Fun, funny, dramatic, ridiculous, violent and surprising. So much fun, it is a film that doesn’t take itself too seriously and, as an audience member, you shouldn’t either. It ups the ante a lot, and keeps you guessing most of the time. If you like Korean films, see it. If you haven’t watched Korean films, this is a good one to start with.

A Hard Day is screening at 6:30pm on Thursday August 7 at Hoyts and on Sunday August 17 at the Capitol. Book tickets at MIFF or call 9662 3722
