A daughter is back home for her mother’s funeral. Her mother appears in a dream and pleads to be buried separately from her husband but her husband is thoroughly authoritative even after his death. He insists on getting only what he wants which is to be buried with his wife and to be served by her. With or Without you shows the picture of a young shaman dragging out the voices of the late mother and father, only to lead the whole family into disarray. The violence and patriarchal society that the family has had to live with for so long is revealed; also there is the fact that the oldest son only follows in his father’s footstep. An indictment of violence within the family and the contradictions that patriarchal traditions spawn. (MO Eun-young)
