Jul 17, 2019 · Swallow has all the makings of a great, unsettling film, but the only things that go below the surface are the objects that Hunter swallows. Too bad it plays it safe. /Film Rating: 4 out of 10
However, after watching Swallow, my mind kept going back to "Silence of the Lambs". The director does not say that this is explicitly their intent, but the more I considered it, the more I liked the thought. For me, it kind of ties the move together into a circular narrative with the opening and ending of Swallow having a lot of parallels.

During the climax of The Call, we saw Seo-yeon’s (Park Shin-hye) mother, Eun-ae (Kim Sung-ryung), sacrifice herself to take down Young-sook (Jeon Jong-seo) and save her daughter. Eun-ae charges into Young-sook just as she’s about to kill the younger Seo-yeon, both women go over the bannister on the first floor landing, fall from a great height, and are left for dead. In the epilogue of the movie, however, Seo-yeon, who is at the cemetery mourning her loss, is miraculously reunited with her mother who seems to have somehow survived her showdown with Young-sook. Seo-yeon is happy and relieved and the both of them walk away, hand-in-hand, and live happily ever after. Or do they? Lest we forget, this is a Korean movie, and they are loathe to give us a happy ending.
During the credits of The Call we are shown a series of scenes which suggest that Young-sook too did not die in the fall. First, we flashback to an earlier scene in the movie – at about the 1 hour 28 minute mark – where we see Young-sook talking to someone while silhouetted behind a glass wall. We are finally made privy to the full conversation she was having on the phone. We learn that 2019 Young-sook warns 1999 Young-sook that Eun-ae and a policeman would be at her door soon, and to be wary as she might get killed. She tells her to hold on to the phone regardless of what happens. Even if things go badly. We then see the aftermath of the climactic fight, where a broken Young-sook, alone and lying in a pool of her own blood, opens her eyes and looks at the camera. After this, we cut back to the cemetery, to Seo-yeon, only to see her mother flicker and disappear. Finally, we see a grown up Seo-yeon tied to a chair and held captive in Young-sook’s basement.
Here’s what we know about the rules of this world, as set up by director Lee Chung-hyun. 1) Even though Seo-yeon’s present is changing based on what’s happening in the past, it seems like only major life or death events seem to have an impact on it. This would explain why Seo-yeon’s present only changed whenever someone was killed, or was saved from dying. It also explains why her present didn’t change when her younger self was being held captive by Young-sook. 2) Both Seo-yeon and Young-sook seem to be in some kind of bubble. Even though the world around them changes, the both of them seem to retain memories of everything that’s happened before. This must be due to some supernatural power afforded to them by the 1990s black cordless phone. 3) Their timelines are connected. If it’s 3PM in 1999, then it means that it’s 3PM in 2019. And if a major life or death event occurs at 3PM in 1999, then the change would happen at the same time in 2019. This is made clear during the scene when...
