Moebius Review

Image for Moebius

Family life in this Korean clan is a little different. Dad (Jae-Hyun) is having an affair, mum (Eun-Woo) loses her mind and exacts gory revenge on their son (Young-ju), who then finds himself sexually attracted to her.

★★★★

South Korea's master of the morbid, Kim Ki-duk, turns to jet-black comedy in a story that starts with a vengeful woman cutting off her son’s private parts with a carving knife. An enjoyably perverse and wordless family crisis ensues, ending on a surprisingly spiritual gracenote.

Even Oedipus would be left scratching his head by this bonkers but drily funny tale of one family's forlorn search for normality.
