    The romantic relationship of Mary Wollstonecraft and Percy Shelley caused a scandal in British high society. Their love breaks a taboo and shows a side of British society. They sometimes spent time with Oscar Wilde, great writer representing Romanticism. The greates artist, Wilde made them the time of pleasure and indulgence. The problem started when pregnant Mary met the tragedy of babybirth. She didn´t get the chance to publish her work becasue of her gender. Her father also didn´t support her social activity. But she started obsessing her story with the tragedy, finally brought out 『Frankenstein』 as the result. It is a horror novel and the original form of SF genre throwing a question about future society. This film delivers the time of darkness for the birth of great writer and story grotesquely painfully just like her work. [LEE Sang-yong]
