Storyline

One summer, Yo-won fails her major and just gets fired from her part-time job, while Min-sun, an aspiring actress, gets humiliated in all kinds of ways by her academic advisor. Tired of the usual obvious advice people give, they drop everything and leave on a trip to Gangleung. But, then they discover a couple of revolvers in their borrowed car - the two revolvers that Detective Kim, from the Violent Crimes Division, and Nalchi, a middle boss in the organization, lost while gambling. The girls assume the guns are fake and pull the trigger - and the window shield goes out. From then on, their plans go awry and the two girls keep getting swept up into strange events. They meet up with Young-mi, a country tearoom waitress who has a complex about her looks, and Jin-a, who dreams of revenging herself on the guy who toyed with her and led her on. When these girls, attracted by the revolvers, get together, events snowball out of control. Written by Anonymous

Thelma and Louise, and what else?
21 May 2002 | by luke-35See all my reviews

Director Shin is a relatively and unexpectedly long-lasting film maker among highly competitive film market of S. Korea. He has always devoted to off-beat comedy combined with some tone of social message.

Downside is that he usually picks some low-level performers, and unscripted scenario. The result is always mediocre and the viewer's reaction is nothing but lukewarm. Afrika is none out of this stereotype. Four girls have their own personal story, and different motivation to grab guns. They settle their feuds, resolve old paybacks toward masculine society.

However, what is the real story? Did he intend to launch a simple stupid laugh for highly-calibered sophomoric Korean filmviewers? No thanks, and no more like this!!
