    2012/02/04,

Law and order, or at least the perceived existence of it, is a common point of departure for a lot of Korean films, but few tackle or focus on the theatrics of the courtroom. Sohn Young-sung's "The Client" is a new experience to me in this way as a Korean court case is played out with, unfortunately, little expressed knowledge of the genre and its need for internal logic and believability,...More
