The Host

Bong Joon-ho, South Korea, 2006o

vBack

After scientists at a US base in Seoul have emptied expired chemicals into the drain, a mutation of a huge amphibious monster occurs. On a sunny day, the beast rises from the river and devours passers-by one by one. Gang-du flees with his daughter, but she is caught by the beast after a confrontation. Everyone thinks she is dead, until Gang-du gets a call from his daughter, who seems to be trapped in a canal system. He does everything in his power to save her.

La plus grande beauté de The Host : si le monstre est un événement, l'événement lui-même n'est rien d'autre qu'une arrivée, une venue. Venir, venir à, arriver, c'est le programme du film. Chaque plan est une invitation.

Jean-Philippe Tessé

Epopée politique d'une famille partie à la recherche d'un enfant enlevé par un monstre. Un éblouissement.

Julien Gester

On tremble plus d'une fois, on reste aussi scotché par l'imagination délirante à l'oeuvre ici.

Jacques Morice
