Yi Seung-jun: Planet of Snail
2011, 88 min.
Language: korean
Subtitles: english

"Young-Chan comes from planet of snail where deaf blind people live slow and quiet lives. When Young-Chan came to Earth, nobody understood his language and he was desperate."

The movie is an intensely moving and inherently taxing study of how a couple in South Korea cope with disability. Young-Chan is deaf blind, and uses finger-tapping to communicate, while his wife, Soon-ho has a debilitating spinal problem that has impaired her growth. Neither the subject nor director ask for sympathy; what emerges is a nuanced hymn to the human spirit that still saddens, even when it inspires.

Feel free to join our group!
