Review

The protagonist is a cow. To see the world from the eyes of an animal isn’t a new idea. But the director skillfully connects the world through a series of montage. The cow used to think she is happy. On Christmas Eve, the cow begins a journey to find her self. She visits hair salon, plays volleyball, and smokes a cigarette. The cow is a political animal. Political animal forms a community and belongs to it. It is a bit funny that the political animal is not human but a cow. That is the point that the film tries to nail down. By placing a cow to the position of human, the film displays a number of ironies and satires, which makes it a metaphor for the world. (LEE Sang-yong)
