Gunfire breaks out in the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, leaving two North Korean soldiers dead while a South Korean soldier flees to safety. With the peace between the two nations on a knife-edge, it is left to neutral investigator Major Sophie Jean to determine what happened.
As Decision to Leave is released in Italian cinemas, we revisit cult auteur Park Chan-wook’s fraught military drama. With comic-book compositions and a crackling energy, Joint Security Area tackles the charged subject of the border between North and South Korea.
