지구를 지켜라!! (Save the Green Planet!)
Managed to make the time for a trip through some of the finest films Korean cinema has to offer and stopped by Save the Green Planet!, which rekindles ones hope in cinema during these dismal summer months of fecal-infected theaters.
Save the Green Planet!’s a bit unconventional as far as genre placement goes, but it manages to mold its aspects of horror, comedy, thriller, sci-fi and drama into a cohesive and absurdly heart warming masterpiece. The film revolves around Byeong-gu, a deranged apparently slow-witted bee farmer, who kidnaps a CEO of a major corporation on account of him being a supposed alien from Andromeda and goes on to interrogate him with the help of his homely carny girlfriend.
It’s best to dive into the film without knowing too much and don’t let the crazy hat poster turn you off!
