SATURDAY 03 JULY 2021 (A–Z) // What’s on in London today including one-off events, limited runs, film clubs, repertory seasons, film festivals, outdoor events, & our selection of new releases.
VOICE OF SILENCE d. Hong Eui-jeong, 2021 at Curzon Soho (03 JUL 15:00) / Part of London Korean Film Festival Teaser Screenings.
- “Sometimes good people do bad things. Chang-bok (Yoo Jae-myung) and Tae-in (Yoo Ah-in) run a humble business selling eggs. The bulk of their income comes from providing spotless crime scene clean-up services to the criminal fraternity. Then, they are asked to babysit a kidnap victim just until the ransom is paid. They reluctantly agree and Tae-in is left to care for Cho-hee (Moon Seung-ah), a bright, capable 11-year-old girl who is soon re-arranging his world. A beautifully shot, bittersweet crime caper with an award-winning performance from Burning’s Yoo Ah-in.”
