The Goggler Podcast #224: Decision to Leave

Dept. of Jibbers, Jabbers, and Yackety-Yaks

Today, on the Goggler Podcast, Bahir and Uma watch and review Park Chan-wook’s Decision to Leave.

Decision to Leave opens in Malaysian cinemas on Thursday, July 14.

Decision to Leave begins with the detective Hae-joon investigating the death of a man who fell from a mountaintop. When he meets the deceased man’s wife Seo-rae, he starts to suspect her at the same time that he begins feeling an attraction to her. Amidst the rising tension of the crime investigation, the film delicately captures the emotions of two characters who feel a special curiosity and unexpected affinity for each other, providing an intriguing mix of suspense and romance. In particular, the unreadable words and actions by Seo-rae make her tantalizingly hard to read, not only for Hae-joon but for the viewer as well, raising dramatic tension. As the location of the story shifts from the mountain to the sea, as their developing relationship is torn between suspicion and attraction, and as the investigation slowly reveals more details about the past, the complex, subtle emotions that tie these two characters together will leave an unforgettable impression on viewers.

Decision to Leave was directed by Park Chan-wook and stars Tang Wei, Park Hae-il, Lee Jung-hyun, Go Kyung-pyo, Park Yong-woo, and Jung Yi-seo.
