Moebius is a 2013 South Korean drama film written and directed by Kim Ki-duk. It was screened out of competition at the 70th Venice International Film Festival.[1][2] It was initially banned in South Korea, before the Korea Media Rating Board reviewed the film and changed the rating.[3][4][5][6]


Critical response[edit]

Andrew Chan of the Film Critics Circle of Australia writes, "To call Moebius daring is actually an understatement, as it is more than that, it is a film that will haunt you, lingers with you and perhaps disturb you till you never think about it again".[7]


The film screened in April 2014 at the Stanley Film Festival and in November 2014 at the London Korean Film Festival.
