From South Korea, first-time director Kim Yong-hoon’s witty crime thriller Beasts Clawing at Straws is a beautifully constructed puzzle that with each double-cross, the pieces fall into place.

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

The film stars Jung Woo-sung from Asura: City of Madness and Jeon Do-yeon, award winner in Cannes for her lead role in Secret Sunshine.
Included on the disc is a trailer.
