Buried by treacherous conditions at the top of Mt. Baekdu, a policeman must brave the extreme weather until his transfer comes through. When a group of thieves stumbles into the station in search of safe shelter, both sides must fight for survival.
There are some decent performances here. Interesting premise that is never fully realized. I watched this movie hoping to see worlds collide - stories intertwine. Maybe it was the writing? The rap lyrics were god awful and some of those scenes were painful to watch. I did think the color and cinematography were really well done. If it's a first effort by this director I think it's pretty great considering all it takes to make a movie. I look forward what his next effort is.

This movie was haunting and unexpected and just so good! The performances and cinematography were perfect. Highly recommend watching this movie!
Acting is superb!
Can't give enough praise to the actors in this movie. It's also beautifully shot and perfectly toned to really capture the anxiety and listlessness of small town life. Very well done and worth a watch!
Modern day Greek tragedy
I was very moved by this movie! Based on a true crime, Savage Youth gives the viewer a very intimate look into the world of these troubled kids. I also loved the freestyle rapping that served like a Greek chorus. Interesting storytelling, beautifully shot, and great performances from the cast. Well done.
