“Exhilarating and hilarious! A one-of-a-kind tale!” – Hollywood News
The debut feature-length film from Korean director Chang Hyung-yun, acclaimed creator of animated short films that have premiered and won prizes at festivals worldwide, the highly original Satellite Girl and Milk Cow was produced by Cho Young-kag (The Fake, The King of Pigs), and received an Asia Pacific Screen Award nomination for Best Animated Feature.
An out of commission satellite picks up a lovelorn ballad on her radio antenna and descends to Earth to find the source of such sincere emotions. But on the way, she is caught in a raging magical battle and transforms into Satellite Girl, complete with rocket shoes and weapon-firing limbs.
Meanwhile, the balladeer in question – a loser twentysomething at a café open mic – meets the fate that befalls all broken-hearted lovers: he is turned into a farm animal. But love knows no bounds, and aided by the wise and powerful Merlin – a wizard who has been turned into a roll of toilet paper – our duo must evade the all-consuming incinerator monster, the wily pig witch, and other nefarious adversaries in an attempt to be together.
Satellite Girl and Milk Cow is a charming and whimsical story about love. Il-ho and her milk cow are endearing and you can’t help but get attached. The animation is typical of other Asian cartoons with lots of action and bold colors. There’s lots of music and songs that pull at the heartstrings.
