About the Movie
Quite by accident, a film director arrives in town a day early. With time to kill before his lecture, he stops by a restored palace and meets a fledgling artist (Kim Minhee from THE HANDMAIDEN). She’s never seen any of his films, but knows he’s famous. They talk, they go to her workshop to look at her paintings, and they have sushi and soju. More conversation follows, along with more drinks, and then an awkward get-together with friends where all sorts of secrets are revealed. All the while, they may or may not be falling for each other. Then, quite unexpectedly, we begin again, but now things appear somewhat different. An uncanny romantic comedy, RIGHT NOW, WRONG THEN is a deliciously intricate masterwork from filmmaker Hong Sangsoo.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Jung is equally credible as a diffident, sensitive artist and an impatient boor, and Ms. Kim slides nimbly from demure to obnoxious.
Fresh: The amiably ambling result is unlikely to shift the divide between Hong's enchanted admirers and impatient skeptics.
Fresh: No filmmaker better understands the revelatory properties of small talk and soju, and few could make the art of repetition seem so rife with possibilities.
Fresh: What's interesting is that part one has an intentionally somewhat pedestrian quality; it's meant to illustrate a regular day-out-of-the-life of two individuals who happen to meet and spend not even 24 hours together.
