Synopsis: Take Care of My Cat (???? ??? Goyangireul Butakhae) is a 2001 South Korean coming of age film. The movie is about the lives of a group of friends ? five young women ? a year after they graduate from high school, and the changes and difficulties they face in both their friendships and the world of work. Though critically acclaimed in its native South Korea, the film’s box office returns were not so great, prompting a ‘Save the Cat’ movement involving film-industry professionals to try to increase viewership before its theatrical run would be cut short. The film went on to many international film festivals as well, where it received awards and special mentions. The film is the debut work of director Jeong Jae-eun, who would later go on to direct the 2005 film The Aggressives.

Synopsis: “”It takes a madman to know a madman. And you’re the leader of the pack.”" In 1865, three years before the Meiji Restoration would end the feudal system and restore Japanese imperialism, the Shinsengumi samurai (an elite samurai police group) are recruiting men proficient, fast and focused enough to join their elite ranks. Teenager Sozaburo Kano emerges as one of the very few who possess the skill to enter this lethal world but there is a problem which potentially makes him more dangerous than his ability with a blade. He is bishounen (‘pretty boy’) whose feminine looks ignite distrust in his fellow warriors. The elders question whether he’s as delicate as his appearance would suggest. To assuage the doubts of superiors he is ordered to execute a samurai who has broken their strict laws, and when Kano decapitates the man with smooth efficiency, he begins to get ahead. But his appearance makes many in the strictly male group – both students and superiors – attracted to him, creating tension within the group of people vying for Kano’s attention, blocking Kano’s path to realising his ambition. Based on Shiba Ryotaro’s novellas, With a Lock of Hair Over His Forehead and The Revolt of the Mountain.
