Foxes, a Circus, and a Spontaneous Musical Sequences
24 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Only with this film will you get a human/fox family that is it's own circus. On the 1000th year they must each eat a fresh human liver otherwise they will turn into a fox and be unable to stay in human form. D-Day 30, the countdown begins.

Trying to stay under the radar, they lived in a remote area, but needing livers they move to Seoul (near Nam Mountain Tower). Being away from people for so long just shows how poorly they understand the human race.

Based off a traditional Korean old wives tale of foxes that eat humans to stay alive, these classes horror story characters are now one of semi-dark comedy. The movie is still worth watching even if you don't understand this background. The foundation is missing but the movie is still understandable and not much gets lost.

The English title is "The Fox Family" and the original Korean title means "The Nine Tail Fox Family." The violence and sexuality equates to about a PG-13 in US standards, not that of a R rated film but more than you would have seen 15 years ago in Korean cinema when the censorship was still in effect. The first circus performance looks like something out of The Adams Family and the characters resemble werewolves in another sequence. It is worth watching simply in it's oddity and for it being a musical, which is rare anywhere outside of Bollywood.
