Alice in Earnestland (2015) 성실한 나라의 앨리스

English subtitles

This film is about Soonam, a woman who lives a life full of ups and downs like a rollercoaster. The movie delivers pleasure and discomfort at the same time by the mysterious pain that Soonam is going through when all she is doing is living a diligent life. While Soonam with dexterous skills has a hard time living within the cold hearted human world, she transforms into a beast. Within this free and creative movie there are several elements that we should pay attention to. The rare and weird characters, wild angles and aggressive editing, different genres confusingly mixed up and extraordinary visual shows a special sensitivity. It is hard to find the origin of the hardships that Soonam is going through. This film points out the irrationality of humanity and the world full of greed. (JANG Byungwon)
