Director

  • IM Sangsoo
    With his debut film Girls’ Night Out, IM raised the provocative issues of women’s desire and sexual drive. His next film Tears was a criticism against the social mainstream through the lives of wayward teens. IM has established his unique cinematic world by interrogating cultural norms. As he was so certain that his third film would be very controversial, A Good Lawyer’s Wife takes the illusion of sex, pretense and lust existed in a family. The film is quite relatable but somewhat uncomfortable, as IM uses his prowess to examine the story of a family’s brutal reality and tragic end.
