Major hit at Cannes, Toronto, NY Film Festivals; 3rd in a series of films commissioned by Paris’ Musée d’Orsay that also includes Sundance Now titles SUMMER HOURS, FLIGHT OF THE RED BALOON. Excerpt from Richard Brody’s New Yorker review: “Most of the film takes place in Paris, to which Sung-nam (Kim Yeong-ho), a no longer young artist from Seoul, flees when he expects to be arrested on drug charges. Living in sodden exile in a hostel in the Fourteenth Arrondissement, he settles into the Korean expatriate community and spends his time with three young women who are well aware that he has a wife back home. “Hong presents their uneasy liaisons as a series of diary entries…and he films them in tense, restrained long takes that suggest the sharp, dry strokes of engravings. Yet the clumsy entanglements they reveal are worlds away from the psychological subtleties of indigenous French romances, and this is Hong’s point.”
Don't bother...really. Evidently no one involved in making this movie did. Why should you? Save your money.
