Movie fur scenes: Snowpiercer

All,

 

Those of you into sci-fi - and of course fur! - might enjoy the film Snowpiercer.

 

Originally released in South Korea in 2013, it is being trickled out in various countries this spring and summer: due for US release in late June and surprisingly I don't see a UK release date listed on IMDB. A multinational production and cast directed by Bong Joon-ho and starring Chris Evans, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Song Kang-ho and Go Ah-sung among others, it is about the last human survivors travelling around the frozen Earth on a special train.

 

In addition to being a pretty good film I thought, there are a few fur scenes in the movie too. Tilda Swinton (portraying a sort of wicked Northern English governess although not at her most physically striking) again wears fur for a few early scenes, in a whiskey brown mink coat. There are some scenes later in the film of other train passengers wearing a variety of real and fake fur coats and stoles, and during the final scenes the lovely Korean actress Go Ah-sung wears a huge hooded coyote or wolf coat.

 

A nice gem of a film I thought.

Well, it sounds like it might be interesting. Have to keep an eye out in the local listings, but with my record of getting to the theater (even for movies I want to see) it may end up being seen via netflix.

Sounds like a cool movie! Would love to see pics of Go Ah-sung in her fur if anybody have more patience with Googles pic search than me.

Aldhissla,

 

I think there might be a few darker images of her in fur in some publicity stills but nothing from those final scenes, where she and the coat are in perfect light. Maybe a search under her Korean name/alphabet will prove more fruitful, or some making-of documentary or extras on a DVD will have some better clips/pics. Might be the end of the year though before a US DVD release.

 

Regards,

Necrobumping this to add an awed "wow" for Go Ah-sung and whatever coat that is. Just when I thought hoods of this sort were a dying breed...a few extra thumbs up for the generous sizing. In my mind that's just the right size for her; she wears it really well, despite the movements the scene calls for.

 

 

So the clip is re-scored independently, but at least the stunning visuals are untouched and very striking.

My cable provider has been running it for a month. I thought it was good, and a little fur goes along way with me!
