The King of Pigs's animation style evokes memories of the great Satoshi Kon, sinuous yet rippling with organic textures that mimic the flesh and failings of real, flawed human beings, with every tear, bruise and knuckle to the face meticulously rendered. One thing the film never allows us is too much room to breathe: these kids are suffering, and so must the audience. Every moment is tripwired, every scene is a time bomb. In keeping with the film's thematic resonance, the adult and child Jong-Suk are voiced, respectively, by Ik-june Yang and Kkobbi Flowerain Kim.
A meditation on the impotence and violence in the world of young adults, and the cancer of memory. In director Yeun Sang-Ho's dark vision, Korea today is bound by an invisible web of resentment, classism and persecution from birth to death, where souls are trapped by their hidden sins. The only way to break free is to face the ugly truth about where we've been and where we're going, on this ball of ice-cold asphalt called the world.
