A HARD DAY Unclassified 18+
"Intelligently and skilfully crafted … an exhilarating Korean thriller full of suspense and amusement." – Screen
Driving home at night from his mother's funeral, homicide detective Gun-su accidentally hits and kills a man. Panicked, he decides to cover up the incident. Big mistake. What starts as a hard day turns into a fraught fortnight as he devises ever more crazy ways to cover up the event.
With a script that delivers clever plot turns, black humour, maximum tension and flashes of social satire, as well as tight editing, a driving, percussive soundtrack and an endearing performance by Lee Sun-kyun (also seen in Our Sunhi, MIFF 2014) as the dodgy cop, this a classy achievement for director Kim Song-hun in only his second feature.
"One of the best pieces of genre filmmaking to emerge in Korea in half a decade." – Twitch
