Skater Boyz : The Aggressives
by Erika Franklin at the Pusan International Film Festival | source
With a relative dearth of female directors making feature films in Korea in comparison to other Asian countries, such as China, where a number have garnered critical acclaim “ Jeong Jae-Eun is a rarity.
Her first feature, Take Care of My Cat, was an expertly-woven and tender tale following five young girls from the port city of Incheon, on the cusp of adulthood. It was well-received on the international festival circuit, despite selling a disappointing number of cinema tickets on home soil (roughly 35,000 admissions).
Her second feature, The Aggressives, centres on a more overtly “cool” (and perhaps even intentionally commercial) subject. Inspired by a trip to Paris and her own keen interest in the peculiar international urban subculture of skaters, Jeong conceived and wrote The Aggressives. Its narrative impetus driven by a series of acutely adolescent concerns (Is life exciting enough? Do I fit in? Am I the only one who feels this way?), the film presents a varied and fairly interesting tapestry of teenage-hood in modern Korea, complete with a stock of teenage characters – in – development and all the modern trappings â€“ including a hand-held video camera to film a myriad of stunts, and the perennial mobile phone.
Events unfold mostly from the perspective of one young boy, Chun So-yo, a child abandoned by his workaholic parents and taken in by a group of skaters. We follow their angst, and witness their growing pains. We watch them manoeuvre their way from surface to surface with exquisite ease, our eyes actively seeking the next ideal launch pad. All this, to a soundtrack that is trying too hard to be edgy, sadly results in a film with a middle-of-the-road feel. Despite moments of real potential, and some well-helmed moments of adrenaline-fuelled action, The Aggressives is slightly disappointing: the dramatic potential is never fully explored, and emotional resonance remains at a tepid, even keel throughout.
After making a very different kind of film in her debut, The Aggressives could easily have brought Jeong plaudits for her attempt at deconstructing a close-knit community in a fictional setting. Unfortunately, instead of scaling dizzy heights, the film slides into obscurity. Given the potential displayed in her initial effort, letâ€™s hope her next film is back on track.
