South Korea, 2012

Director: Kim Ki-duk

”Pieta” is not only a triumphant return to dark drama for Kim Ki Duk, but one of his best films to date, no small praise given the unfailing quality of his output. Though undeniably a tough watch, it’s a film which succeeds fully on both an emotional and artistic level, and which again confirms Kim as one of the most talented directors working in Korea and indeed the world today.
