Return to Seoul: release date revealed in Italian cinemas!

In the past few hours, I Wonder Pictures has unveiled the release date in Italian cinemas of Return to Seoul, the film by Davy Chou which will be distributed in collaboration with MUBI

Between Slam Dunk, Daliland and Alice, Darling, the beginning of May in Italian cinemas seems to be really promising. And if we add an auteur film? Return to Seoul by Davy Chou arrives at the cinema from May 11 with I Wonder Pictures in collaboration with MUBI, a platform that has made it possible, over time, to make auteur cinema take up more space. Already presented in the official selection in the Un Certain Regard section of the 75th Cannes Film Festival and in its Italian premiere at the Turin Film Festival, it is the second film by the Franco-Cambodian director after Diamond in 2016.

The synopsis of the film is as follows:

Freddie, 25, impulsive and stubborn, returns to South Korea for the first time since she was adopted by a French couple as a newborn. Here, she starts looking for her parents who abandoned her. Between meetings, new friendships and the shadow of a biological mother who doesn’t want to be traced, the girl finds herself immersed in a culture very different from hers and embarks on a journey within a journey that will take her in completely unexpected directions. To discover that perhaps this is life: meeting the unexpected, riding it, being all the people you could have been.

Return to Seoul: finally the release date for Davy Chou’s film

Director Davy Chou, born in 1983, draws inspiration from his personal story. Born in France to Cambodian parents, he returns to Cambodia for the first time at the age of twenty-five and, like the protagonist of his film, shares the complex relationship with his native land. The story takes place over eight years, following the growth of Freddie. During the various phases that distinguish it, music becomes the linguistic denominator that unifies and overcomes obstacles through a common rhythm that goes beyond French, Korean, English and that brings the different souls of the film closer together. The search for identity and the discovery of one’s roots are the fulcrum around which all the director’s research revolves.

Return to Seoul, which is scheduled for theatrical release on May 11, is distributed by I Wonder Pictures in association with MUBI, and is produced by Aurora Films and co-produced by Vandertastic Films and Frakas Productions. Return to Seoul will soon be on MUBI. Let us know if you’re going to see it below in the comments e stay tuned with us at for all the news on cinema and TV series!
