The Moebius poster has some eloquent art work by the artist Kim Ki Duk. The Ouroboros depicted on the sheet is an ancinet symbol of self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return.
Moebius is a story about a father’s infidelity sparking a chain of violent events which lead to his wife dismembering their son.
Moebius has had a troubled journey before its premier at Venice. It couldn’t get a general release rating from the South Korean Ratings Board until 60 seconds were slashed from a total of over 40 scenes. One of the scenes depicting incest, a deeply taboo subject in South Korea, needed to be excised. Duk’s last film Pieta won the Golden Lion at last year’s Venice International Film Festival.
