“A staggering masterwork that reveals itself unhurriedly, one permutation at a time… perhaps the only film this year in which every single scene and every line of dialogue within them feel absolutely indispensable.” - Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times

Born in Seoul and raised by adoptive parents in France, 25-year-old Freddie (Park Ji-Min) impulsively decides to travel to visit friends, returning to South Korea for the first time since she was born. Freddie suddenly finds herself embarking on a journey in a country she knows so little about, taking her life in new and unexpected directions.

Directed by Davy Chou, who is based between France and Cambodia, “Return to Seoul” premiered at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival under the Un Certain Regard section and was selected as the Cambodian entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 95th Academy Awards.
