Netflix Series: Snowpiercer

After watching the infamous movie “Parasite” by Bong Joon-ho, I discovered that he had previously filmed another movie called “Snowpiercer”. Therefore, I watched some of the short videos on YouTube of the movie….

Then, I saw this poster show up on my Netflix list!

Summary

In a post-apocalyptic world of ice, humankind’s last resort and hope was this supposedly luxurious train of 1001 cars. World’s most powerful and richest families paid for their tickets to board this exclusive train. Only the highest skilled workers were allowed to earn their keep on board.

Problems began to brew at once when the poorest and unwanted people fought their way onto the last car as the train departed.

The story began with the need to solve a murder and the detective from the tail end (Tailie) was taken up to first class to help out….

Themes

1) social injustice: Only the richest and most powerful people had the best of the best. The tail end of the train was treated as scum of society. People tried everything to move up the cars. Looking down and dealing with prejudice was part of normal life.

2) morality: In order to be able to move up the cars, people would do things that went against their conscience just to survive.

Yay or Nay

I really enjoyed the twists and turns of the storyline. It definitely had many surprises throughout the episodes. So, yes, it’s a Yay for me!

  1. Ohhh, this sounds like a very interesting series, definitely curious now. I did see the show pop up on Netflix, but the picture they used didn’t really spark with me. But now I will put it on my list. 🙂
