The Day He Arrives

“Hong Sang-soo does Groundhog Day” says Time Out New York about the new film by the contemporary Korean master. It’s another funny-sad compendium of pathetic behavior in which a former movie director turned provincial film professor spends a three-day weekend in Seoul. But each day’s activities—wandering around the city, drinking with bar-mates, reconnecting with an old girlfriend—are so similar that he seems caught up in an endless loop of disappointment and failure. “Among (Hong’s) very best…A strange mixture of magic, mystery, rueful melodrama and dry comedy that's like absolutely nothing else.” –
