Save The Green Planet (2003)
Save The Green Planet (Jigureul jikyeora!) is a debut, and so far only feature movie by director and screenwriter Joon-Hwan Jang. It was nominated and won many awards across the globe, recognizing directors talent.
Lee Byeong-gu (Ha-kyun Shin) is ordinary white collar worker, but he has a secret, or rather he knows THE secret, the big conspiracy. Aliens are living among the humans and are to blame for all problems occurring in society and in his personal life. And what he knows for sure is that soon aliens are gonna make their final attack and destroy the earth. For Lee Byeong-gu it's understandable that he is the only one who can prevent it, to do so he has to get into contact with their leader, alien Prince. With help of his not so normal girlfriend, he kidnaps CEO of company he works for, whom he believes is high ranked alien disguised as human. He tortures him, trying to expose his alien nature and to force him to make a contact with Prince.
To call it really bizarre, is a light way of describing this work. Containing seemingly unbelievable mix of genres, such as comedy, drama, action, science fiction and even horror, or torture flick, this film makes all of it work together flawlessly in this one fine piece of cinema.
A movie that you probably haven't seen anything alike before. Highly recommended if you are in search of something... weird?
