DECISION TO LEAVE
A detective falls for a mysterious widow after she becomes the prime suspect in his latest murder investigation.
Decision to Leave is an exceptional love story and a sublime noir thriller that invites the audience to get lost in a mesmerizing tangle of tension, slow-burning desire and subtle emotions. The resulting experience is a personal and highly satisfying immersion in pure cinema.
Everything starts with a fall. A man who was climbing a mountain is found dead, crashed to the ground. Tragedy? Suicide? Homicide? Handsome detective Hae-jun (Park Hae-il) investigates the mystery. He is a gentle man, happily married and devoted to his work.
Making the case even smokier is Seo-rae (Tang Wei), the elusive, charismatic and impossibly attractive Chinese wife of the deceased, whose charm creeps under Hae-jun’s skin. In ways he could have never envisioned, their broken conversations—deciphered through smartphone translations, her composed gestures and mysterious allure—upset his life little by little, making him fall mentally and emotionally.
