El día después


Dirigida por Hong Sang-soo
Corea del Sur, 2017
Drama, Romántico


Areum is looking forward to her first day of work at a small publishing house, unaware that she’s replacing the boss’s lover who recently left him. She is therefore caught off-guard when the boss’s wife causes a scene in the belief that Areum was to be the recipient of a love letter.

El día después Dirigida por Hong Sang-soo
It pushes the director’s minimalist tendencies yet further: four characters, three locations and the ephemeral spaces in between, minimal surplus information, an almost total focus on claustrophobically framed conversations and their undulations of resentment and regret. Hong’s endlessly varying relationship dramas have always been cousins to the work of Éric Rohmer; this story of free-thinking women instrumentalized by oblivious men might just be his Love in the Afternoon.

In addition to a startling, very Hongian occurence of déjà vu that in fact involves amnesia, The Day After includes one of his most remarkable soju-soaked long-take two-shots, in which boozy flirtation and flattery suddenly turn into a disquisition on the limits of language and the nature of reality.

The Day After constantly defies its own forward movement. Its literal non-linearity is itself a marker of time’s arrow, which can inevitably be tilted and zoomed in upon via subjectivity.

  • Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film El día después

    The more Hong Sang-Soo films I see, the more they grow on me. I can't say I have a standout favorite yet, but this dark comedy from him has helped in the progress of my enjoyment of his work.

  • Jason's rating of the film El día después

    Hong becomes more and more adventurous w/ structure and congruence, but he remains above all the contemporary filmmaker most emblematic of Heidegger's assertion that great poets keep writing the same poem. Hong's poems, of course, are about varieties of (often Soju-inflamed) interpersonal sloppiness and the intractable gulf between man and woman. He remains peerless in his clear-eyed assessment of the workaday cad.

  • josé neves's rating of the film El día después

    Digital. The main characteristic of Sangsoo is his persistence in a narrative cinema with subtle fictional variations that has also its own material existence, because there's a close dialectic with narration forms and narrative: his films dare to be within representation. There is a loneliness that links, in continuity, the director with actors and spectators, in a loose comedy, which is the stage the world is.

  • Wee Hunk's rating of the film El día después

    There's no way to catch up with this guy. I've seen 8 of his films, but he released 3 movies during 2017. His films tend to be of variable quality. This one is washed out which doesn't make for a pleasant viewing experience. The acting is amateurish, particularly the drunk scenes. I suppose I'm less tolerant of a prolific filmmaker, unless he's a genius like Fassbinder.

  • Kamran's rating of the film El día después

    Fighting, Crying, Black and White. Is this an antipode of Claire's Camera? What a range Sang-soo has. Dialogue driven conversation scenes with such passion and life. Philosophy and poetry intertwine. Life and reality and everything in between. 81/100 - Great.

  • Matthew Martens's rating of the film El día después

    Beautifully shot, occasionally witty, frequently winsome, and persistently trite, The Day After demonstrates, once again, that Hong can churn out these variations on the same slight formula, and receiving the same overwrought plaudits for them for, I don't know, a very long time, and in several timelines at a time. Believe it.

  • Yasser Azmy's rating of the film El día después

    The digital looking cheap pans and zooms, and a music played from old cassette player, is not new in hong so's films, but it has done with overload this time, all that added to the humor factor, i was giggling on every cry, but also it made me think of set-coms feels, that relies on laughter as main factor, i loved the new girl character tho, the movie had good conversations as always ,but something was off beat.

  • Lucas Granero's rating of the film El día después

    De vuelta al blanco y negro, Hong nos entrega una película-llaga en la que cada escena evidencia la perfección de su sistema. Maestro en el arte de filmar conversaciones, aquí su estilo se vuelve un tanto más agresivo al maniobrar diversos níveles emocionales de sus personajes sin nunca cortar, haciendo de cada plano una lucha de diversas energías y contradicciones. Es así: su cine no puede más que seguir creciendo.
