Directed by Shin Su-won
Hye-rim, a 35-year-old woman, finds a job at a hospital as a caregiver assigned to a quadriplegic VIP patient who practically owns the hospital. For the past 10 years, the VIP patient’s son Sang-woo has been desperately keeping him alive for money, ordering the doctors to perform several heart transplants despite recurrent heart failures. In need of another one, Sang-woo takes a brain dead unidentified woman as a donor and asks Hye-rim to look into her background. She discovers that the woman was once a prostitute known as ‘Madonna’ who has experienced a lifetime of abuse, and that she is pregnant. In an attempt to save Madonna’s unborn child, Hye-rim goes against Sang-woo’s orders and searches for the baby’s father.

마돈나'라는 제목의 아이러닉한 여운
★★★½ review by scissorwing on Letterboxd
마지막 혜림의 편지는 다소 작위적이었고 혜림의 배경은 모호하다. 허나 영상미와 시퀀스는 고개를 끄덕이게 만드는 힘이 있다. 제목 역시 중의적 표현으로서 매우 적절했다. 주, 주조연들의 연기도 뛰어났다.
