Mother (2009)

"Mother" is a Korean film that I saw this past weekend.  It was Korea's entry to the Oscars to be considered for Best Foreign Language film.

The film is about a mother that does whatever she has to do to prove that her mentally challenged son is innocent of murder.  The mother knows in her heart that her son is innocent and she goes to many extremes for proof.  

The acting was very good in the film.  The mentally challenged boy was excellent.  It was a very realistic portrayal.

"Mother" is expertly produced and is a very good story.  Unfortunately, the middle of the film needed some help.  Not enough happened in the second act, but the first and third made up for it.

B  I recommend it.
