A definitely MUST watch for fans of Korean cinema...
27 July 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Being an avid fan of Asian cinema, I stumbled upon "The Fox Family" one day in browsing on Amazon, decided to pick it up, as I haven't really seen an Asian musical, so I thought I would give it a go.

Must say that I am glad that I did, despite there wasn't all that much singing in the movie, oddly enough. Personally, I would have liked to have had more singing and dancing in the movie, that would have had it a Korean musical worthy up alongside "The Rocky Horror Picture Show".

The story in "The Fox Family" is about a family of foxes that have taken human form by means of a spell, and they have a once in a lifetime chance to become humans permanently as the moon aligns with the sun at the 1000th year. But in order to attain permanent human shape they have to eat the liver of a human being within the 30 minutes of the eclipse. Having set up a circus act in order to lure in humans, the family have to find 'volunteers' for this ghastly ordeal.

I found the story to be quite good actually, it was just the right amount of bizarre, odd and twisted, without slipping into the absurd. Plus the storyline was really helped well along the way by some really great acting performances. Especially all the people hired to portray the roles of the members of the fox family were putting on amazing acting performances.

The movie is really a visual treat, because it is shot in a very beautiful way. There is something very grand to the cinematography of this movie, and that was something I thoroughly enjoyed.

"The Fox Family" is a great addition to any movie fan's DVD collection, especially if you enjoy Asian cinema and have a taste for the somewhat grotesque. It stands out from the average mainstream Korean cinema in a great way, and it really delivers the entertainment in a fabulous way.
