With the death of her long-time director, Chan-sil, a film producer, is now unemployed. While working as a cleaning lady at an actress’ house, she meets a young man. Attracted to him, Chan-sil realizes old anxieties are about to emerge: her already gone-youth, messed-up love life, and broken career.

Our take

A wonderful, loosely autobiographical debut from Hong Sang-soo’s former producer Kim Cho-hee, Lucky Chan-sil observes its titular protagonist’s listlessness with unwavering empathy, charm, and droll film industry humor. Extra support comes from none other than Minari Oscar-winner Youn Yuh-jung!
