Decision to leave is an adult film. Instead of telling the story of grief as a tragic event, I tried to convey it with subtlety, elegance and humor, in a way that will touch adults. ” Chan-Wook Park

Decision to leave it focuses on the trajectory of two characters: the wife of the deceased and an inspector who is increasingly fascinated by her. Seo-rae **, who lost her husband in a brutal accident, shows no signs of trouble or sadness. The police start investigating her, considering her a suspect, but the latter maintains her unwavering and intrusive attitude in all circumstances.

Halfway between a police investigation, a love story and an absurd comedy, Decision to leave, far from the transgressive dimension of previous works Chan-Wook Parkis an intense drama in which the most subtle emotions overturn the characters and settle little by little between the two protagonists.

“For Seo-rae, who lived considering herself unhappy, Hae-joon is like a gift. She was pleasantly surprised by the reciprocity of her feelings. For Hae-joon, Seo-rae is like sea waves. There are quiet moments, more intense moments, moments when it completely overwhelms him, moments when it comforts him, but remains unpredictable and uncontrollable according to his will. Chan-Wook Park

As the film takes us on a journey from the mountains to the sea, as the relationship between the characters oscillates between suspicion and seduction, the investigation reveals additional details about their past.

As the tension of the investigation grows, the film delicately arouses the curiosity and desire that move the two characters. Hence the unexpected mix of tension and emotion.
