Synopsis

After years of living abroad in America, former actress Sangok is back in Seoul, staying with her sister. Over the course of a day, it becomes clear that there are many things she’s not revealing, and this may be to do with her decision to meet with a film director to discuss her return to acting.

Our take

Contemplative and absorbing, lucid and profound, the crystalline work of Hong Sang-soo gently opens up the beauty of the everyday. In this poignant tale of an actress returning home and ruminating on a life in art, there are all the treasured markers of the acclaimed, irrepressibly prolific auteur.
