Overview

Review

External crises can be opportunities for internal solidarity, but in the world of this film, individual greed is prioritized, as if to raise our awareness of the exhaustion from the pandemic. Concisely arranged elements in the black and white screen, familiar yet sad melodies, excessive zoom-in technique and bird's-eye view, as well as dramatic dialogues and acting are all tied together in Mercy Killing, providing a strange sense of unfamiliarity and immersion at the same time. Moreover, these elements play a role in re-twisting this film’s subverted social value that “choosing to die in comfort” preserves human dignity and is best for people rather than “struggling to survive by any means.” [JUNG Seung-eun]
