The perfect commentary on consumerism in West. No, it is not a genuine
North Korean propaganda film. Yes, what it discusses is so damning, it
could very well have been.
No thick story plot, or undertones to unearth, this piece of film tells it straight. You do not need to be intellectual to get this. Whether what it discusses is 100% factual, or not - me thinks the proof is in the pudding. It intends to build discussion, is the one thing I am sure of.
A perfect piece of propaganda, itself, it forces the audience to see themselves from the view of an unbiased third party. To look at the structure of our society, from the top to the bottom - something most of us are accustomed to knowing only in reverse(being the bottom-feeders that most of us are).
Engaging viewing that will no doubt provide for equally engaging discussion for years to come.
Unlike the majority of people who have given reviews, I actually watched the film several, several times. Unlike the majority of bad reviews, I do not have a lot of knowledge of the cartoon version of the story. Watching it, I knew of the online ranting that was going on about it, and how it had received poor ratings. Honestly, I can't see why. If it strayed from the original cartoons plot, or characters, then thats what it did. It doesn't escape the fact that it was a beautifully produced piece of film that tells a story that is both of great depth, yet still graspable for even the youngest of audiences. Loved it, plenty!
