Korean master filmmaker Park Chan-wook keeps you guessing in his dazzling detective thriller that won the Best Director prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.

Seo-rae’s possessive husband, a seasoned rock climber, is found dead at the foot of a rock formation. Young detective Hae-joon suspects foul play and sets about checking the alibi of the man’s beautiful and enigmatic wife, even while he finds himself falling for her. Is she a killer or is she innocent?

Decision to Leave is an elegantly crafted love story and a sublime noir thriller that invites you not to seek a culprit or a solution to the riddles proposed, but to get lost in a mesmerising tangle of tension, desire and subtle emotions. The investigation is exquisitely constructed, with a stream of revelations, pulse-pounding action and continuous glimmers of wry humour. You’ll be kept delightfully off balance at every turn.
