“Return to Seoul” is a startling and uneasy wonder, a film that feels
like a beautiful sketch of a tornado headed directly toward your
house.”- New York Times
Davy Chou’s RETURN TO SEOUL, which premiered in Cannes 2022’s Un Certain
Regard, is an unpredictable and refreshingly authentic story of a young
woman’s search for identity. Park Ji-Min delivers a revelatory
performance as Freddie, an adoptee who was born in South Korea and
raised in France. Freddie is magnetic, spirited and hard to pin down;
never in one place, or with one person, for long enough to get attached.
At 25 years old, she visits Seoul for the first time since her adoption,
in an attempt to reconnect with her biological parents and the culture
she had to leave behind.
