Whodunit’s signature classic style

‘Confession’ can be said to represent the classic style of the murder mystery genre, using the context of the crime scene taking place in a closed room. We never know what’s really going on behind the walled murders.

We will then be led along with various clues and evidence. Which will eventually unravel layers of mystery and uncover the truth about the real motive and of course most importantly, who is the real killer.

Two-character point of view

Throughout the film, we will be following the story line from the perspective of the two main characters, namely from the perspective of Yoo Min Ho and Yang Shin Ae. With Shin Ae’s help, he forces Min Ho to tell him about everything that happened that he can remember. Scene after scene interspersed after all the events that led to Min Ho becoming the defendant.

Although the narration is quite complex and quite dense, with precise timing and editing, the story line flows smoothly and neatly, making the whole story quite understandable. By using flash back plot, little by little the bright spot about this murder case starts to come out. Along with the occasional twists and turns, dark mysteries are finally solved.

By using a slow plot, it is easy for the audience to get caught up in emotions and gain a deeper understanding of the nature of each character. Also, by using a slow speed, the atmosphere is tense and the tension is quite intense. Director Yoon Song-jeok also used a lot of close-up shots for depth and interesting changes in expression. Confession also has a special noir feel, using soft colors so that it presents a sad and charming atmosphere but also presents a mysterious and eerie impression.
