Snowpiercer by Bong Joon-ho

Snowpiercer is an American and South Korean movie, directed by Bong Joon-ho, with Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho and John Hurt. The first release of the movie was in 2013 in South Korea. This is a science fiction movie, based of the french graphic novel Le Transperceneige  by Jacques Lob, Jean-Marc Rochette and Benjamin Legrand.

The story takes place in 2031, after the failure of an experiment to counter the global warming in 2014. The entire world is frozen, and the only survivors are the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer. A class system is installed, with the elites inhabiting the front of the train and poor inhabiting the tail. The hero, Curtis Everett, has to lead the inhabitants of the tail to a rebellion against Wilford, the creator of the Snowpiercer.

Even though the scenario is not exceptional, the setting are really beautiful, and Bong Joon-ho has made beautiful shots. This movie is also very allegorical, and critic the United States, and of the system of caste. The more you watch the movie, the better you understand it !

  1. I have discovered this movie two weeks ago and it’s a great science fiction movie ! I think the metaphor of the train is very interesting and efficient to symbolize the different social classes ! And the inability to exit the train represents, in my opinion, the fact that people in the society can’t change their social conditions as they want.

  2. You forgot to put that it’s thanks to me that you saw it!! lol it’s really very quite carried out this film!
