Fiction / English, Korean, Japanese, French
The long-awaited UK premiere of a visionary work by a contemporary master.
In the near future, attempts to find a technological fix for global warming have backfired disastrously. Life is extinct, except for the people and the ecosystem aboard a train that endlessly circles the ice-shrouded globe. Onboard, the lower class are relegated to the crowded back cars whilst the ruling class enjoy lives of luxury in the front - until two brave workers lead a revolution and discover the terrible secrets of Snowpiercer... A thrilling, imaginative and intelligent adventure adapted from Jacques Lob, Jean-Marc Rochette and Benjamin Legrand's acclaimed graphic novel. 
#1/ Wednesday 28 May, 2014 / 16:38 GMTVery weird movie, based I think on a French comic book. Very French in tone but mediated through Korean ultra-violence. Strange, strange movie.
#2/ Wednesday 28 May, 2014 / 16:38 GMTOoops, wrote the above without checking out the description- "graphic novel" not comic book then...
#3 / Tuesday 24 June, 2014 / 15:14 GMTAn infuriating waste of time. Nothing intelligent about it IMHO
