A young married woman is separated from her husband for the first time in their five years of marriage as he is currently on a business trip. She goes out to meet old friends and catches up on their health, work and love lives – seemingly shallow conversations that uncover deeper truths below the surface.
For his subtle character study of upper class Seoulites, renowned director HONG Sang-soo won the Silver Bear for Best Director at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival. With sometimes surprisingly funny situations HONG perfectly balances his slow observational style with scenes of narrative momentum.
