A dour student, Young-gul, crosses paths with an elderly book salesman obsessed with Hitler and Nietzsche, a two-thousand year-old female corpse, and a mad scientist. Young-gul wants to commit suicide but the book salesman insists the human will even overcome biological death. Young-gul tests this by trying to kill him. Later the corpse comes to life in the hope that Young-gul will impregnate her.Written by

Delightfully strange beginning half hour (giggle-inducing, embracing death versus will-to-live horror premise) gives over to a seemingly disconnected, or conveniently connected yet meandering, subplot which somehow becomes the bulk and main thrust of the film. It's all deliriously macabre, languidly mad and dark. A great late night mind tickler.
Why this film is not widely available on home video as a cult classic is anybody's guess but for now it is available in its entirety on YouTube as part of the Korean Film Archive. The English subtitles are there, you just have to turn them on.
A film for those who like exploring outside of the mainstream oddities.
