The International Film Festival of Catalonia screened The Chaser, Korean Na Hong-jin's first work. The movie denounces the corruption of the police and judicial system. The project's basis is actually the social undertone. "I wanted to tell the story of a flesh and blood woman murdered in plain daylight", the Korean director stated, to later add that "I wanted to make a movie where the viewers felt empathy for these women". Eom Jung-lo, played by actor Kim Yoon-seok, an ex-cop involved in the prostitution business, realizes several of his workers have disappeared. A serial killer has tortured and buried them.
The Chaser, one of the most talked about films at the last edition of the Cannes film festival, already has an American remake in sight.
