The President s Last Bang depicts the brutal reality and ensuing chaos of a political coup with unapologetic frankness, unexpected humour and unrelieved intensity. Imaginatively recreating the 1979 assassination of South Korean President Park Chung-hee, writer-director Im sang-soo dares to make complex, realistically neurotic characters out of the most polarizing figures in modern Korean political history. Through outwardly cynical, Korean CIA chief Kim secretly nurtures a personal disgust with his dissolute president s embarrassing appetites and impatience with this dissent-mired nation During yet another banquet with President Park, the chief executive s corrupt top advisors and two wary party girls, Kim impulsively improvises a conspiracy that will change the course of the world politics, When Kim and his thuggish enforcer Ju make their move, they initiate a bloodbath that threatens to drown both victim and assassin.
