Film description

In 1933, Korea is under the brutal Japanese occupation. The only ray of hope is the thriving resistance, making the occupant's life miserable. Feeling threatened, the Japanese authorities gather five suspects at a secluded, elegant hotel to reveal the true identity of the elusive Phantom's, a prominent figure among the rebels. An exciting game of life and death begins, which both sides are determined to win. Will find out who Phantom really is? Or whether he exists at all?

The adaptation of a Chinese novel by Mai Jii begins like a typical costume spy movie, slowly building up the tension and skillfully misleading the viewer. Then it changes its tone and the story takes a surprising turn. Stylized and filled with plot twists, "Phantom" abandons historical accuracy, turning into a pure cinematic joyride. The real stars of "Phantom" are Park So-dam and Lee Ha-nee, and a cameo by Esom known from "Microhabitat." This is yet another example of director Lee Hae-young's ("Believer," 13th Five Flavours) collaboration with one of the best cinema composers, Dalparan.
