Hilarious! Love all the references to modern idioms (best thing since sliced bread, invention of the wheel, etc). More people should be seeing this!

While the film is deliberately crude in some respects — Park once described his aesthetic as making sure that, no matter how carefully sculpted his clay figures were, he always left the thumbprints showing — it’s fastidiously detailed in others, dancing between broad humor and subtle, almost subliminal gags as it plays out the conflict between Neanderthals and their evolutionary successors.

No matter when the action is set, some things never change in Park’s world. Nor should they.

The laughs are split between deft sight gags and set pieces, and goofy word play.
