Plot: Based On Actual Events

A "wildly funny whirlwind of anarchy, violence and sex" (New York Magazine), The 
President's Last Bang depicts the brutal reality and ensuing chaos of a 
political coup with unapologetic... frankness, unexpected humor and unrelieved 
intensity. Imaginatively recreating the 1979 assassination of South Korean 
President Park Chung-hee, writer-director Im Sang-soo dares to make complex, 
realistically neurotic characters out of the most polarizing figures in modern 
Korean political history.

Though outwardly cynical, Korean CIA chief Kim secretly nurtures a personal 
disgust with his dissolute president's embarrassing appetites and impatience 
with his dissent-mired nation. During yet another banquet with President Park, 
the chief executive's corrupt top advisors and two wary party girls, Kim 
impulsively improvises a conspiracy that will change the course of world 
politics. When Kim and his thuggish enforcer Ju (Han Suk-kyu, Tell Me Something) 
make their move, they initiate a bloodbath that threatens to drown both victim 
and assassin.

Going where only Altman's M.A.S.H. and Kubrick's Strangelove have traveled 
before, The President's Last Bang is both a "nasty, profane and utterly bracing 
black comedy," (Premiere Magazine) and "assumption-destroying, deeply 
entertaining political art" (Grady Hendrix, NY Sun). Sang-soo's coolly dynamic 
camera reveals the most scandalous 24 hours in twentieth century Korean memory 
with fluid grace and uncommon skill, and his cast anchors The President's Last 
Bang's remarkable mix of expose, tragedy and farce with keenly observed 
characterizations. It is contemporary Asian cinema at its most courageous, 
audacious and insightful.
