About This DVD
From Guns and Talks to Someone Special to Righteous Ties, Jang Jin is known for his quirky characterizations, unconventional narratives, and clever dialogue and pacing. His films are always interesting and often in unexpected ways. The director's latest title My Son takes the audience into family drama territory with the depiction of an estranged father and son who meet again after years of separation. From this gentle premise, Jang Jin builds a compelling, evolving character-driven drama that captures the protagonists' fragile and complicated relationship, displaying once again his knack for screenwriting and storytelling. Starring as the father and son are Cha Seung Won, who previously collaborated with Jang Jin in Murder, Take One, and a slimmed-down Ryu Deok Hwan, who picked up quite a few Best New Actor awards in the past year for his brave leading performance in the award-winning Like a Virgin.
Lee Gang Sik (Cha Seung Won) is serving a life sentence for murder. For the last 15 years, he has been on his best behavior, and now his wish has finally come true. Gang Sik has been granted a one-day leave to visit his family, and as the day draws closer and closer, he is overcome with both excitement and nervousness. There is so much he wants to say to his teenaged son (Ryu Deok Hwan), whom he hasn't seen since incarceration, but the feeling isn't exactly reciprocated. Forced to grow up at an early age, his son has had a tough life, taking care of his troubled mother on his own, and in his eyes, he sees not a father, but a stranger, a criminal. How can Gang Sik make up for 15 years with just one day's time?
