Based on the hypothesis that the act of ‘consoling oneself’ committed by boys full of testosterone is the process of reaching a paradise, this film compares their journey towards a paradise with a math formula. Special symbolic props add the film’s humor. Using fast-paced editing and various montage techniques, the film takes a unique approach to the sexual curiosity of adolescents.


 

The Formula of Completing Paradise is a witty and original short film, but the wittiness and originality somehow seem to come from a set of
 familiar cliches. Director’s humorous presentation of men’s masturbation and pastiche-like usage of elements of pop culture and sub-culture
 are very elegant and at the same time familiar. Also, the film’s sense of distance, which stems from the lack of identifiable characters, makes it
 unique. The film includes factors that can be both controversial and problematic. [HWANG Miyojo]
