Review

A novelist, Kim Jeongseok is looking for his missing wife. A woman appears in front of him and suggests to find his wife. Meanwhile, there are someone to approach and ask Kim Jeongseok to find missing persons. They finds themselves becoming chasers at some point.

The Avian Kind is the road movie that Kim pursues his missing wife, is a story that different people tries to resolve unknown truth together as well. During the journey, they meet another persons and the new ones also go forward to huge unknown being hiding their goal secretly.

While watching the film, the audiences would get curious more and more. Where is the wife disappeared? Is she changed into other existence like the rumor? Is it really possible?

Shin Younshick has brought up diverse hidden desires in human being consistently since early his films. He creates a story of human’s disappeared dream of becoming new being. It is the origin that human has dreamt from time immemorial, at the same time, it is the desire to destroy the human´s boundary, further, it is also the story of salvation to wish new existence.

It is interesting that The Avian Kind deriving from a part of The Russian Novel is genealogical experiment that one film produces another film´s motif. Accumulating the layers of many stories, Mise-en-Scene of the film capturing the border between human and nature comes to audiences beautifully, hurtfully and keenly.
