On an impulse to reconnect with her origins, 25-year-old Freddie (Park Ji-min), returns to South Korea for the first time, where she was born, before being adopted and raised in France. The headstrong young woman starts looking for her biological parents in a country she knows so little about, taking her life in new and unexpected directions.
Directed by Davy Chou.
Review: “Return to Seoul” begins as an intimately off-the-cuff stranger-in-strange-land story and becomes a sprawling epic of personal discovery. It’s one of the best films of the year. – The Playlist
