Uhm Jung-hwa and Kim Sang-kyung’s thriller Montage

It looks like Uhm Jung-hwa (Dancing Queen) has another box office hit on her hands with her suspense thriller Montage, which opened yesterday in second place against Hollywood blockbusters The Great Gatsby and Iron Man 3. The film stars Uhm Jung-hwa as a mother who lost her child to a kidnapper fifteen years ago, and Kim Sang-kyung (Tower, White Christmas) as the detective who failed to close the case and remains haunted by it to this day.

Fifteen years ago Uhm Jung-hwa’s daughter gets kidnapped and she and the detective on the case fight tooth and nail to get her back, and fail. Suddenly, fifteen years later — and five days before the statute of limitations runs out on the case — a single flower is left at the scene of the crime. Days later, a grandfather takes his eyes off his granddaughter for just a minute… and she disappears. Eep. Okay, I know I’m the one recounting the story to you, but I just creeped myself out.

So fifteen years later the kidnapper has returned to repeat his crime move by move, which doesn’t sound very smart, but maybe he’s feeling invincible since he can no longer be charged for the first crime, or maybe he’s just an insane person. In any case, once they learn of the second kidnapping, the mother who already lost her child and the detective who let it eat away at him all this time join forces to retrace their steps from the first crime, to try and save the second little girl before it’s too late.

Montage is in theaters now.

Another movie to look forward to! Be handy to have a list though. I swear I've forgotten half my to-watch list by the time the subs come out.

Best advice, based on American reviews: catch Iron Man III for the action, this flick for chilling intensity, then bring them both up at the office when your friends start complaining about paying money to see that goofy Gatsby flick with the hip hop soundtrack in the '20s.

So this would be a big fat YES in my book. Love her, love him, and done well - this is about the very best type of movie to watch for me.

However, does anyone else think they've heard the ending trailer climax music a lot lately in other trailers?

Looks great! See this is what a mother does when her kid is snatched from her! This why The City Hunter situation never made sense.

Yup. Same nose, same intense grimace when stressed. Minus the eyeliner, they could be twins.

Oooh, this sounds good.

Love Kim Sang-kyung and Uhm Jung-hwa looks like she's doing an awesome job too as the tortured mom. I don't like her glamour puss image as much.

sounds like a nice thriller, also like the kind of movie that would have freaked my parents out when my sister and I were kids

I saw the trailer(s) of this movie and I am just pulled into this storyline. And with Uhm Jung Hwa and Kim Sang Kyung being chosen as ambassadors to promote the organisation of missing children in South Korea speaks volumes about this movie. Hope it has a long running in the theatres!
