South Korea | 2017 | Hong Sang-soo
Hong Sang-soo’s third film of 2017 (after On the Beach at Night Alone and Claire’s Camera) is another melancholy comedy of booze and infidelity with a scrambled time structure. Here the philanderer is a publisher who has damaged his marriage by having an affair with an office assistant who has since left his employ. He pours out his heart to her replacement (Kim Min-hee, star of all three of Hong’s 2017 features and the director’s current flame). “A loquacious, Rohmer-kissed comedy of missed chances and misunderstandings, in which matters of the heart are drawlingly discussed over lashings of soju…Regular [Hong] acolytes will drink it up.” –Variety. Subtitles. DCP. 91 min.
