The creator of ‘Parasite’ has become highly recognized after his Oscar win and his earlier projects have now also come into the fold. ‘Snowpiercer’ is the latest Netflix Show and it follows the story of the 2013 South Korean-Czech film of the same name. The 2013 film was directed by Bong Joon-Ho and stars Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton.
The original source for both is the French Graphic Novel ‘Le Transperceneige’ created in 1982. The Netflix adaptation is done by Graeme Mason or Orphan Black fame. The show will supposedly go through the topics of social division and oppression.
What is Snowpiercer About?
The world is now a frozen wasteland and the only survivors, the RICH SURVIVORS, are passengers aboard the Snowpiercer. The year is 2021 and the world had frozen over seven years ago in this dystopian future. Social division is affirmed in the form of class divisions now as the rich enjoy luxuries beyond the wildest dreams of the other survivors.
“Your Security is our highest priority … Order will be Restored” are the words that we hear from Melanie Cavill, the voice of the Train and a first-class passenger aboard it. A gruesome murder brings down the social divisions of the Snowpiercer, a great ark-train. Melanie’s peers do not concern themselves with the lower class passengers but she finds herself being highly curious about them. The tail end of the train is where the low-class passengers are being held and it is where the chaos first begins. A mystery looms over the passengers surviving the cold apocalypse that is Earth.
