The Age of Shadows

de Kim Jee-woon



The Japanese occupation of Korea seems to be one of this season’s star topics. Kim Jee-woon also ventures into this period, hand in hand with a Korean man working for the Japanese and who goes undercover in a rebel gang. But it won’t be long before doubts start to cloud our hero’s determination and jeopardize his mission, definitively unleashing this film with loads of espionage and action.
