The highly rated Mother (2010) won the best film award at the Asian Film Awards 2010. Mother (2010) was directed by Bong Joon-ho and stars Kim Hye-ja and Won Bin. I recently saw Mother and can honestly say wow, I never saw some of the things coming in that movie that transpire. The third act of that film is really good. You are still thinking about it afterward. Between the two films though, I still prefer Joon-ho’s The Host. Its also a family film but there is way more going on than just the family issues, which is the case with Mother.
