Editorial Reviews

This visually stunning work by one of Korea's most experimental filmmakers takes place against the beautifully bleak backdrop of rural Korea. After a devastating break-up, Ji-young Chang, a transgender installation artist, travels to the Philippines and returns with a beautiful new bride. Back in Korea, a young man who believes he was adopted from the Philippines enters the couple's lives. Questions of nationality and gender identity come to the forefront as sexuality and livelihoods intertwine.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Occasionally a film comes along in which the message overshadows the movie. In this case, LAND OF THE SCARECROWS falls in the category. To judge this film, one must separate the one from the other. The message is that man has polluted the environment. Nearly every scene is replete with visually stunning images of a blighted landscape. The buildings that house human beings are dilapidated. The land itself is polluted with mutated creatures emerging into view. The lead character herself is one such mutated being. She describes herself as one who grew up near a landfill that "messed up" her hormones such that she is now a he. Disturbingly enough, her gender confusion is more psychological than physiological. She appears to be female yet dresses as male, thus suggesting that she might actually be salvageable as a female were she able to afford gender transformation surgery--which clearly she cannot. No one in this film has the monetary means to alter their lifestyle. Part of the pollution is human directed. There are heartbreaking scenes of mail order bride meetings going on in the Philippines with Filipina women lining up in humiliating fashion hoping to catch the eye of a Korean man seeking a wife. And it is here that message encroaches on the movie. The hero (heroine?) meets by chance one such female and quickly takes her to Korea and in short order the wife learns of her husband's true gender. She decides to leave him but lacks the wherewithal to return home. There is a parallel plot in which a young man who was raised in the Philippines goes to Korea to find his father who long ago abandoned both him and his mother. The movie suggests that this father is the same transgender about which the film is centered.Read more ›

Not a very interesting movie. I fell asleep some where in the middle of it. I'll try to watch it again, but I don't think it will help.
