RETURN TO SEOUL 回首爾後
RETOUR À SÉOUL

Born in South Korea and raised in France by French foster parents, 25-year-old Freddie gets a chance to visit her motherland when she is rerouted by a typhoon. Stepping on Korean soil for the first time as an adult with little knowledge of her native language and culture, Freddie begins an unpredictable journey in search of her biological parents. In his follow-up to the acclaimed Diamond Island, Cambodian-French director Davy Chou drew from the experiences of other Korean adoptees to craft this engrossing voyage of a restless wanderer in search of the roots she left behind.

被領養的孩童終於尋覓到自己的身份後,該如何自 處?韓國經濟起飛前,貧窮戶將兒女送給外國人撫養並不罕見。當年因此而被送到世界各地的孩童,不少都希望找回自己的身份和歷史。然而,在法國成長的她,與親生父母有著全然不同的文化,使得這趟遠赴韓國的尋根之旅引發出更深層的身份思考。當中的黑色幽默,亦娓娓道出主角的格格不入和倔強。歷時八年製作,導演延續前作的主題,細膩入微地探討著在大起大落的時代下,不同人物內心的瓜葛。
