Brian Matthews One of the new strands included in this years Edinburgh International Film Festival is ‘Focus on Korea’ and Pluto is one of the six films on show to allow UK audiences to discover the most exciting in recent cinema from South Korea.

Filming began on June 9th 2012 and was completed in the following August, its world premiere took place in October 2012, with a general release date in Korea of July 11th 2013, so we are fortunate to see this movie so early in its release schedule.

The story takes place at an elite boarding school and when the film opens we witness the murder of its top student. The main suspect is June a boy from an underprivileged background who has not been able to break into the coveted ranks of the top ten students, a sort of Korean Bullingdon Club. Its when he discovers that there is a conspiracy among these top students to keep all others from obtaining there academic potential that the situation get more explosive.

Academic terrorism rules in a bitter and twisted story where teachers, parents and pupils care more for their grades than they do for their fellow human beings. People who are prepared to go to any lengths no matter how extreme to gain exam results that will catapult them into a career that will reward them with untold riches and power.

Shin Su-won’s direction, the wonderful cinematography, the totally convincing acting from its mainly young cast and the utterly appropriate soundtrack add to a very strong story line that gives European audiences an example of South Korean filmmaking at its very best.

Ramachandran I saw the movie today at EIFF( Edinburgh) on 23rd June . It is a terrific movie , well scripted and Directed . I felt the mad parents driving their children For success in entrance examinations in my Induan state o Kerala should see this movie !!!
