SYNOPSIS

‘Korean virtuoso Hong Sang-soo delivers an absurdist spin on the romantic comedy when a young painter has a fight with his girlfriend for drinking with another man, then discovers her doppelganger appearing wherever he goes.

When his mother falls deathly ill, Youngsoo finds himself in an emotional crisis. With the shadow of his own mortality knocking on the door, he wonders if he should take the leap to start his own family and marry his longtime girlfriend Minjung. Once that idea takes root in his mind, rumours start flying about his soon-to-be-fiancé: that she's been seen drinking with other men. When Youngsoo confronts her, she adamantly denies it. Soon more and more sightings of multiple Minjungs are being reported, complicating Youngsoo's marriage proposal idea and seeming to manifest all of his insecurities about life and love into several physical forms.

This South Korean absurdist comedy by Hong Sang-soo is an inspired reversal of surrealist director Luis Bunuel's masterpiece, That Obscure Object of Desire, which follows one woman played by multiple actresses. Yourself and Yours is a bizarre and playful meditation on relationship hang-ups and hesitancies, and all the people we can be in the face of tragedy.’ Seattle International Film Festival
