Film director Ham arrives in Suwon a day early for a screening and speaking engagement. Roaming about, he meets a much younger artist named Yoon and they spend the day together in conversation, winding up at a café where things turn awkward. Hong then rewinds the story, telling it again with subtle differences and a different outcome, playfully playing with the alluring possibility of love going down two different paths, one bitter, one sweet. Winner of the Golden Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival, Hong’s meditation on male behavior, social graces, and the complexity of communication provides compelling viewing.
