Decision to Leave is a stirring romantic mystery about a seasoned investigator that becomes obsessed with a murder suspect. Award-winning Producer and Director Park Chan-wook (Old Boy, The Handmaiden and Thirst), Decision to Leave takes audiences to a mountain peak in South Korea, where a man plummets to his death. Did he jump, or was he pushed? When detective Hae-joon arrives on the scene, he begins to suspect the dead man’s wife Seo-rae. But as he digs deeper into the investigation, he finds himself trapped in a web of deception and desire. [2022, South Korea, 138 min, Rating: NR, in Korean with English subtitles] Radheyan Simonpillai of CTV’s This Morning exclaims, “Possibly the sexiest movie of the year and certainly one of the best.” Maxwell Tabb of Chicago Reader writes, “Decision to Leave is a subtle masterpiece from Park Chan-wook, braiding a heart-stirring tenderness into a murderous thriller.” Venue: Cinema Art Theater.
