Details

After impulsively running off with a lover to the USA many years ago, former actress Sangok (Lee Hyeyoung) has suddenly returned to Seoul. She is staying with her sister Jeongok (Cho Yunhee), doing mindfulness exercises and hoping to meet up with director Jaewon (Kwon Haehyo), perhaps belatedly, to revive her moribund career.

With its title referencing not just the many scenes of one-on-one dialogue, but also something hidden in plain sight, prolific writer/director Hong Sang-soo's latest film seems, with its unspoken secrets and its film-world metacommentary, to be typical of his œuvre, even as it gently subverts many of his characteristic tropes. In a bar pointedly named 'Novel', the characters drink Chinese liquor rather than the usual soju, and the film's grave themes are lightened by Sangok's life-affirming laughter.

Screening as part of the London Korean Film Festival 2021.
