Movie Info

Unable to have a child of their own after 10 years of marriage, Do-il (Kim Jin-geun) and Mi-sook (Shim Hye-jin) decide to adopt. But the quietly artistic boy (Moon Woo-bin) they take in would rather spend hours by himself under the acacia tree in the backyard. When Mi-sook discovers she's pregnant, the once-dead tree begins to bloom again -- but things take a sinister turn, and a series of unexplained accidents begins destroying the family unit.more

Audience Reviews for Acacia

Mildly creepy Korean drama. I was expecting this to be a more horror themed film but it's more of a family drama. Visually it's got class and parts of the story have intrigue up untill the shock reveal at the end. The problem was that it's just so slow-paced and boring at times, and there were no scares at all. It's ok overall though, I just got myself in the wrong mood whilst watching it.

Simple but rather effective. Take the average helping of Asian creepy kid and then how guilt can bring about ghosts within oneself. It's all very slow and subtle, building tension without ever having a reasonable pay off. This film gets under the skin and works its way through. Most scares take place inside the minds of the characters, though one unsettling scene involving ants has one of the harshest pop sound effects on film. Unfortunately the relaxed and creepy atmosphere soon becomes dull and hard to stomach. It's chilling enough but also requires some emotional investment which becomes hard as the films family becomes more and more detached and distant.

I love the unconventional narrative and the slow burn of the plot. You have to have the patience of a saint to get through the entire thing without your mind wandering at least once, but I found the reward to be suitable. The collapse of the family unit may well be the most horrifying thing about this film.
