The Cinematheque at the Capitol Theatre
South Korea | 2012 | Hong Sang-soo
Isabelle Huppert stars in the latest comedy—another experiment in narrative—from South Korean master Hong Sang-soo. The movie, set in a Korean coastal resort town, consists of three distinct episodes—each one starring Huppert as a different French visitor (a successful film director, a bourgeois housewife having an affair, and a divorced woman jilted by her husband). Since Huppert’s character looks the same in each vignette, is always named “Anne,” and interacts with the same locals, the episodes unfold like variations on a theme. The result is both cerebral and laugh-out-loud funny. “The cumulative impression is of figures being lightly traced in the sand only to be inevitably washed away, intentionally ephemeral and quite charming for it.” –The Village Voice. Cleveland premiere.
