A woman, working all day at a restaurant, doesn’t remember the night when her husband was killed. Although the film suggests that she might be the culprit on the basis of several circumstances, it takes no interest in solving the crime. Faced with her husband’s death, she is lost in thought of going back to work. The woman’s this inarticulateness or sereneness is baffling.


 

 

A woman, working all day at a restaurant, doesn’t remember the night when her husband died. Although the film suggests that she might be the culprit on the basis of several circumstances, it takes no interest in solving the crime. Faced with her husband’s death, she is lost in thought of going back to work. The woman’s this inarticulateness or sereneness is baffling. Vanished Night is different from a series of movies that narrate stories pushing a character into a corner. That is because we never find out anything from her and because a poor but tenacious woman worker’s body which performs physical labor on automatic pilot, and the body’s sad, pellucid tenacity support this movie. It is difficult to forget the last gruesome, sad sequence where the woman reveals her fragile feelings through her stumpy body, lying curled up in a tiny, dark studio. (NAM Da-eun)
