London Korean Film Night: Homebound (1967)


Paralyzed from the waist down due to injuries from fighting in the Korean War, Coe is sexually disabled. He becomes a novelist and uses his own marital relationship as the motif in a novel that is serialised in a newspaper. He is tortured by the feeling of shame that for 14 years of marriage he has not been able to fulfill his duties as a husband. In front of him, his wife insists that being with him is her choice, but her impassiveness puts him in deeper despair.
