YesAsia Editorial Description

Based on the true story of the E-Land Mart strike, Cart follows a group of female contract workers who band together to fight for their rights when they get unfairly laid off from their jobs. Female director Boo Ji Young (Sisters on the Road) brings together an award-winning lineup of actresses – Yeom Jung Ah (A Tale of Two Sisters), Moon Jung Hee (Hide and Seek), Kim Young Ae (The Attorney) and Chun Woo Hee (Han Gong Ju) – for this empathetic drama about labor activism and its effects on the women's lives and families. Cart also co-stars Kim Kang Woo (Tabloid Truth) as a mart supervisor who supports the women's cause and EXO's D.O (It's Okay, That's Love) as Yeom Jung Ah's teenage son.

Working mother of two Sun Hee (Yeom Jung Ah) is a model employee at the large discount mart she works for, and has been promised promotion to full-time status. Before the promotion comes through, however, she and the other female contract workers, many of whom depend on the job for livelihood, are suddenly informed that their contracts have been terminated early. They form a union and attempt to negotiate, but management refuses to even acknowledge them. To make their voices heard, the women stage a sitdown strike and take over the mart in what will be the beginning of a long and grueling fight with the company.

Strike, stand and deliver Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Based on a true S Korean Mart strike, 'Cart' portrays the situation of a group of part time women workers at a discount Mart who are suddenly laid off due to company out sourcing. After the women's negotiation pleas are ignored by the stores top management, the women workers decide by leadership to form a union for a sit in strike to force change their employers minds. Central protagonist is Sun Hee (Jung Ah Yeon) who as part time worker at the Mart needs her job to help raise her son Tae-yeong (EXO's Kyeong Soo Do) and pay the compulsory bills. As a part time model worker at the Mart, and promised a permanent full time job, Sun Hee's promotion opportunity becomes scuppered by the management cut backs. Crestfallen and at a loss what to do Sun Hee is uncertain about the women's union being formed, all she wants to do is earn money for her son and livelihood. Not suddenly become a political activist. Other women are worried but strongly adamant to voice their job termination concerns. Hye-mi (Jeong Hee Moon) had worked full time for a another store in the past, earned good brownie points but had still had her contract coldly terminated - now again at the Mart store. So strike these women do, with full gusto that at all costs the women workers will be victorious over such unfair dismissal.

As a sympathetic worker the Mart's supervisor Dong-joon (Kang Wook Kim) also deems the women's plight unfair dismissal and eventually becomes the women's union' head voice. But as the Mart store management dig their heels in with stiff resistance, and with the women's strike tactics reaching up to 51 days, the women find themselves being carted out of the store and its outer locality by heavy handed security men- a viciousness the women never bargained for. Sun Hee witnessing the horrendous treatment, becomes more vocal about strike and fight. Unfortunately she ends up in jail. To add to Sun Hee's problems her disgruntled son Tae-yeong (peeved mostly over his mother's absence and seeming to not care about his school concerns, needing money and daily life), certainly doesn't approve of his mother landing herself in temporary jail. But Tae-yeong begins to have serious trouble of his own when secretly working part time at a small convenience store (a job he obtains by a girl he likes there and to earn cash for his school inventories), the owner refuses to pay his wage. When the girl he likes smashes the convenience store window in rage, Tae-yeong gets the big blame.

Divided they stand Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Just before leaving school I hadn't a clue what to do career wise. My mum pushed me into certain job directions (one dental technician work even though I was scared of the dentist then) but eventually landed myself a job in the UK printing industry (which also had a very powerful Union). Now I’m technically a graphic designer. Even so life is hard for these struggling check out women and anyone losing jobs with a family to keep.

In various ways ‘Cart’ with its female camaraderie and wit, is a type that could be chummed up easily with S Korean prison movie 'Harmony'. This movie is also a like cross between the 80s UK Greenham Common peace women, January store sales (riot police barging into a Mart store though instead of purse/wallet draining bargain hunters) and video game Saints Row the Third (well at the end anyway, sort of...without the big massive explosions from the latter of course). ‘Cart’ is a more sentimental type than deep social comment. It highlights a ‘bad’ management system and the ‘enemy’ as big corporation employers. The employee points system of privilege is always going to be a divider, rewarding the ‘best’ employee - and here with little difference as main characters with excellent service seem to be still treated like disposable nappies. Of course it's that old niggle of corporate profit margins being prioritised over employee work ethics and simple job satisfaction and personal compassion. A majority born into a capitalist system need a job, money for demanding bills to pay (the obvious thing) but where the employee/management mind set is divided by differing interests and priorities. If rich - what are the next profitable bricks to buy - if poor, needing money to feed the kids and rent bills.

The end of Cart signifies an ongoing ‘battle’ - the common person against the greedy corporate system that heralds money over the human masses. Ironically all people are customers (even check out women) and its the ‘us and them' mindset that harbours moving into a more fairer and compassionate world. Its systematic divide - the remote job interview procedure, the binding contract system and all the other 'must mistrust the little person' nonsense who are more susceptible to scrutiny.

But, anyway, Cart can be enjoyed as much as debated. This set well packed with extras. Lots of VIP and audience bits on this one, surely well promoted! Also with two Girls' Generation members at the VIP (psst..now give me that fiver for saying that you two).
