Product Description

Wild and wacky sci-fi comedy horror by South Korean director Jang Jun-Hwan. Byeong-Ju (Ha-Kyun Shin) is a confused young man who believes that a major industrialist, Kang (Yun-Shik Baek) is actually an alien from outer space who is out to destroy the planet. Along with his dippy girlfriend, circus performer Sun-i (Jeong-Min Hwang), Byeong-Ju kidnaps Kang and tries to force him - using increasingly extreme methods of interrogation - to reveal his 'royal genetic code' before the next full moon...

Format: DVD
Basic plot is slightly deranged young man, kidnaps and tortures CEO of company convinced he is an alien out to destroy the planet. The plot keeps you in suspense the whole way through as you try to figure out whether he's mad or telling the truth. I saw this film on screen as part of Tartan Extreme Season, it contrary to the above review bombed badly at the Korean box office as it was to much for critics and audiences to take in. This film manages to be everything at once, comedy, torture, a thriller, a dash of sci fi, spoof of many films (usual suspects, 2001), commentary on low moral standards of modern life, the good old rogue eccentric cop/young colege hotshot cop routine and odd characters (the anti hero's girlfriend is a dumpy tightrope walker). At the core of the film is that old question, of humanity and whether overall there is any good in the human race. This is what makes the film great, it has an emotional core and central themes that holds, (just) all the disparate elements together and it really stays with you. The director handles all these elements skillfully and none of these elements detract from each other . To say much more would give the game away. The acting by leads and the supporting cast is superb and the film is has some wonderful set pieces, in particular with a swarm of bees. This film is the most frantic energetic film I've seen in a long while, its almost like he's scared he'll never make another film again so he has to get all the thoughts he ever had into this one. This film really is not for everyone, but if you're looking for something truly unique, crammed with ideas and energy and sets your brain cells in motion, then give this a try as words are thoroughly insufficient to describe it. I am pleased to see it has the fantastic critical response it deserves in the US(though some are still puzzled) so check them out if I haven't manage to convince you.

weird, touching, poignant, graphic and squirm inducing... oh did i mention that it was weird?! a young man kidnaps a powerful member of society, believing him to be an alien and tortures him for information concerning the end of the world... which is due any day now. what starts out as a funny, bizarre movie soon turns into something utterly creepy. this film is like a rollercoaster ride- with twists and turns at evry corner. it has some amazing cgi effects and is brilliantly acted. the script is tight and the direction sublime. i have to admit to not really liking it for the first hour but then something happens and the film clicks into place, making some kind of sense of everything that has come before. i seriously recommend this film, especially to lovers of japanese cinema.

When a drugged up, factory worker, part time bee-keeper and all round crackpot named Byeong-gu researches the background of a powerful Korean industrialist called Kang he can draw only one conclusion, Kang is an alien from Andromeda who plans on taking control of Earth on the next lunar eclipse. Byeong-gu then does what any self respecting paranoid, drug addled lunatic would do, kidnap the man, tie him up in his basement, and torture the truth out of him.
In between his quest to get the truth out of Kang, he robs banks to take care of his comatose mother, cares for his bees and builds mannequins, and if all that isn't weird enough, the tone of the film wildly changes direction from surreal comedy, to extreme violence to edge of the seat suspense, alternating as quickly and disorientating as possible, and as strange as it seems it all works very well. It's not a perfect film by any means, but the truth is that it's so inventive and original you'll forgive its shortcomings.
If you enjoy something out of the ordinary then 'Save The Green Planet' is great fun.

I loved this film to bits and probably for the same reasons I love films like Delicatessen; a feast of humour and creativity situated in a very dark place. Worth all 5 Stars, if only the western studios had the balls to finance more projects like this one.

This is one of the most innovative flicks of the Noughties with an astonishing performance from Shin Ha-Kyun. This underrated gem from South Korea is part Sci-fi/thriller/horror/comedy. Lee Byeong Gu (Ha-Kyun) is convinced that the alien prince is about to strike earth when the next lunar eclipse arrives in seven days time. So with his dim-witted girlfriend Sunni he kidnaps Kan Min-Shik, the CEO of a wealthy conglomerate, convinced that he is an alien spy reporting back to the extraterrestrial prince hovering above the planets atmosphere. Byeong Gu takes the CEO to his remote and isolated home so he can subject him to his bizarre, ritualistic torture methods until he reveals his true alien identity and relinquishes the genetic codes needed to stop the planned attack on Earth.

As the story unfolds we discover that Byeong Gu has had a very traumatic life; bullied at school by pupils and teachers, his previous girlfriend was beaten to death and his mother has been poisoned by the same man he has just kidnapped indicating to the viewer that our would be saviour is nothing more than a revenge seeking psychotic. This theory is further compounded when the CEO discovers notepads in his new dungeon home of other victims tortured over the years and killed by the deranged kidnapper Byeong Gu, who concluded on each occasion that he simple got it wrong and must continue his search. This truly is a brilliant flick with an unpredictable ending that's guaranteed to satisfy any film fanatic looking for something a bit extraordinary.
