Memories of the Sword


Dir. Park Heung-sik. 2015, 121 mins. Digital projection. In Korean with English subtitles. With Lee Byung-hun, Jeon Do-yeon, Kim Go-eun. As the greed and excess of a corrupt monarchy threatens to destroy the once-glorious Goryeo Dynasty, three legendary warriors lead a revolt to overthrow the empire and save its people. But when deceit and betrayal cost the life of a master swordsman, a plot for justice and revenge is set into motion, raging for decades between the two survivors. From the director of Children of Heaven and starring Byung-hun Lee (The Good, the Bad, the Weird and Terminator Genisys), Memories of the Sword is a lavish epic that blends tragic historical drama with thrilling swordplay and martial arts.
