Mother is a thriller of a different ilk to many, being slow, methodical and packing a significant emotional punch. It is the kind of film many hope Joon-ho Bong will continue to make, eschewing the more mainstream bigger budget popcorn munchers like The Host. It is multi-layered and brimming with intrigue and suspicion, yet manages to find some darkly absurd humour in amongst the heavier themes.

The disc is a fine representation of Bong and cinematographer Kyung-Pyo Hong’s vision, holding great depth to the frame and containing a large amount of detail in its fine palette. The audio isn’t likely to bowl anyone over, but it handles the important areas of dialogue and music extremely well. The extras won’t be of much use to non Korean speakers but they are at least a sign of how much we can hopefully come to expect from CJ Entertainment in future, preferably with the added bonus of English subtitles. As a package, this is thoroughly recommended for not just fans of foreign cinema, but those who crave more depth from their mystery thrillers.
