SYNOPSIS

Friendship and questions of loyalty intersect in an enchanting tale of female camaraderie from prolific Korean auteur Hong Sang-soo (Hotel by the River, BIFF 2018).

With her husband away, Gam-hee (Kim Min-hee) embarks on a visit, her first in five years of marriage, to friends Young-soon (Seo Young-hwa), Su-young (Song Seon-mi) and Woo-jin (Kim Sae-Byuk). These masterfully and rhythmically crafted encounters reveal delicate information about the women’s friendship and perspectives on relationships, particularly Woo-jin’s fling with a smitten young man. The film’s breezy structure, punctuated with minimal dialogue, subtle cinematography and Hong’s own gentle score, all submerge us in the nuanced inner worlds of the characters as they reflect on life.
