“Many crimes every year go undiscovered for different reasons, sometimes just because they are not discovered, other times because sadly nobody cares about the victims. It is what criminologists call the “dark figure of crime”, that opaque amount of unreported and consequentially uncared-for, crimes. Shifting the point of interest from the killer to the victims is what makes Kim Tae-kyun’s new film “Dark Figure of Crime” stand out from the abundance of South Korean serial killer movies. Based on a true story, the project was inspired by a TV program called “Unanswered” whose incredible quantity of source cases made director Kim Tae-kyun think about the families of the vanished victims and their suspended lives in a limbo of uncertainty, as he told us in the Q&A after the screening.” – ADRIANA ROSATI, Asian Movie Pulse
