Acacia (2003) Synopsis:

After unsuccessfully trying to have a baby of their own, Dr. Kim Do-il and his father convince his wife Choi Mi-sook to adopt a child from an orphanage. Mi-sook is connected to arts and chooses the six years Kim Jin-sung that loves to draw trees. The boy becomes close to the eight years old next door neighbor Min-jee and is attracted to an old Acacia tree on their lawn. When Mi-sook unexpectedly gets pregnant, her mother asks her to return Jin-sung to the orphanage, beginning the rejection process of the boy. When the baby is born, Mi-sook does not treat Jin-sung well, who believes the acacia tree is his mother, and on a rainy night he vanishes. Along the next days, the family becomes insane, disclosing a dark secret about Jin-sung.

Acacia (2003) Review:

I have to stop watching horror movies after midnight. Acacia, Akasia or The Root of Evil gave me nightmares. The story is touching and in the same time shocking. The script, although it might be ambiguous at first, ends up tying all the loose ends and gives the viewer a clear story with a clear ending. I applaud the production for choosing the boy that plays Jin-sung and the girl who plays Min-jee. They both are really good and even gave me some spooks. And I liked how the emotions that you think the parents feel turn out to be entirely different at the end. That was a nice and welcomed trick after dozens of movies which have failed to surprise me.
