Bystanders

Bystanders comes to the Eastern Eye series of DVDs and it certainly lives up to the rest of the collection in this brilliant series put out by Madman of the best in Asian Cinema. Hailing from Korea, Bystanders stars the lovely Yunjin Kim who some of you might know from the TV series Lost. 

What the show is about is a look into the mind of a serial killer and the quest of detectives to unravel clues and find him before he can strike again. A number of students have been found dead and the suspicion  is that they have committed suicide. An autopsy reveals that this is not the case when a page from a diary is found in a capsule. Itís then that the hunt for the killer begins in earnest and the cop played by Kim, needs to explore the past to figure out what might happen in the future. 

This is part thriller and part morality play, the film is true to how society views females and their place in Korea and sometimes our heroine oversteps the mark which of course rankles the other police but makes for some interesting moments for us. 

This film contains a making of which goes in some part to show exactly what the motivations behind the film were and also of course the processes were that make this flick so enjoyable. Some of the over the top acting may annoy some viewers but for the most part this is one good DVD that should not be overlooked by fans of Asian Cinema.
