1933, during the Japanese colonization of Korea. The Phantom, an anti-Japanese spy, is actively researched by the military. They gather five suspects in an abandoned hotel, where everyone tries to find an escape from this trap, and each other.
« One of South Korea’s biggest hits of 2023, a brilliantly lensed, action-packed spy drama. » (New York Asian Film Festival)
« A throwback to American film noir from the last century, Phantom takes us into an almost bicolor universe. Women in raincoats smoke in slow motion under the rain, exchanged coded messages pass from hand to hand in an old illegal cinema, and a scheme is brewing as the sumptuous film Shanghai Express plays in the background. Phantom is part of the wave of new Korean cinema that focuses on powerful women.” (Asian Movie Pulse)
