REVIEW FOR THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD - KOREAN FILM BY KIM JI-WOON
Creaking Projectors is screening a Korean film, "The Good, The Bad, The Weird" (Korean title: Joheunnom Nabbeunnom Isanghannom), on March 18th, at Cafe Latte, Madhapur.
"The Good, The Bad, The Weird" is directed by Kim Ji-woon, and stars Song Kang-ho, Lee Byung-hun and Jung Woo-sung. It is inspired by Sergio Leone's "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly".
The film is set in the 1930s' Manchurian desert where lawlessness rules and different ethnic groups clash, and narrates the tale of 3 Korean men who fatefully meet each other on a train. Do-won is a bounty hunter who tracks down criminals who have rewards on their heads. Chang-yi is the leader of a group of tough-as-nails bandits, and cannot stand to be the second-best. Tae-goo is a train robber blessed with 9 lives.
The 3 strangers engage in a chase across Manchuria to take possession of a mysterious map that is discovered by Tae-goo while robbing the train. The Japanese army and the Asian bandits are also on the hunt for the map. Who will win this unpredictable and escalating battle?
The diverse passengers, and the imminent danger that lurks due to the abundance of guns and knives in the train, enable the movie to serve as a microcosm of the turbulent times in Manchuria.
The entry ticket is priced at Rs. 100 per head. Please contact 98668-89042 for further details.
