Moss – A Mystery Surrounding a Diabolical Villain
Once in a while there comes a villain where the audience absolutely loathes him to a point that they stay glued to the screen till the end just to see how judgment is delivered. Moss features one such villain, the Village Chief, played by Jung Jae Young. While the story focuses on his evil and mysterious nature, Jung Jae Young’s unique portrayal of this character is what makes it stand out. Not sure if it is an accent in South Korea, but there is something strange in how Jung Jae Young speaks in this movie – adding an eerie element to the Village Chief character.
The movie, in spite of being longer than 2 and half hours, keeps the audience gripped and guessing till the end by revealing the mystery in bits and pieces. And, these small revelations are all over the place, only to be concluded in the final shot with a twist that makes the audience go “Holy F**k! That’s why!”. If only there existed a translated version of the webtoon on which this film is based, it would make a very interesting read.
It might not feature the biggest stars that the commonly watched Korean movies have, but the storyline and characterizations make “Moss” one of the must watch films.http://subsplease.com/2015/04/moss/http://subsplease.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Moss-feature-cropped.pnghttp://subsplease.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Moss-feature-cropped-300x300.pngKoreanKorean Film
