Beasts Clawing at Straws
New trailer for the Korean festival hit.


Having already scooped the Special Jury Award at this year's Rotterdam International Film Festival, debut writer/director Kim Yong-hoon's noirish thriller Beasts Clawing at Straws has unveiled a trailer as it prepares to hit the reopened festival circuit this autumn. 

The film is centred around a bag of money and the various underworld figures desperate to acquire it. The ensemble cast features Jeon Do-yeon, Jung Woo-sung, Bae Sung-woo, Yun Yuh-jung, Jung Man-sik, Jin Gyeong, Shin Hyun-been, Kim Jun-han, Jung Ga-ram, Park Ji-hwan and Heo Dong-won.

Check out the trailer and poster below.


The official synopsis reads:

A Luis Vuitton bag stuffed full of cash sends a group of hard-luck lowlifes on a desperate chase for the fortune in this pitch-black neo-noir crime thriller. Fish-mongering gangsters, a greasy cop, an “innocent” gym cleaner, a prostitute, her wife beater of a husband, her ruthless boss and her clueless boyfriend all violently scheme to get their hands on elusive the bag.
