Based on the popular Internet novel, "Multi-Cell Girl", the film takes place in "No-Use High School", a school renowned for its sexual aberrations. The student body is comprised of sexually ambiguous teenagers, and the student president and vice-present flaunt their taste for S&M. Independent study and supplementary classes are done on homosexuality and transgenderism, and teachers and students alike leave school early because of sexually-transmitted diseases. But amidst this environment, there are some that just can't adapt. Among them: "Poor Girl", a student who earns money for her family by sleeping with older men; "Anthony", a luxurious pretty-boy from Switzerland; and "One-Eye", the school's sole virgin. Poor Girl falls in love with Anthony at first sight. Meanwhile, Anthony is struck by One-Eye's brother "Two Eyes" and feels confused about his sexuality. Written by
I saw this at the 2008 Palm Springs International Film Festival. It's one of those films that make you ask yourself, why was this film made, who was it made for and why would a popular film festival accept it's submission? I, admittedly had a few smiles into the first 20 minutes of the film. Several in the audience were laughing out loud but by about the half-way point of the films run time the laughter was reduced to a couple of awkward giggles and by three quarters into it there was complete stunned silence. This is a film based on an Internet comic strip called Multi Cell Girl and should have stayed that way. Maybe if this had been made into a 20 minute short film it may have worked better but it played itself out and then beat itself to death in a slow and agonizing limp to the closing credits. Wong-Jong Lee was good as Big Razor Sis and OK-bin Kim was good as Poor Girl. The teacher was entertaining. Condensed into a 20 minute short would have worked better. I would give this a very generous 4.5 out of 10.
