The sole concept of showing a story once and then starting over with something having changed is fascinating enough (and isn't new here), but the way that Hong Sang-soo implements it is beautiful. Every single second that Kim Min-hee is not of the screen, I am thinking wistfully of the last time she was.
What a delightful, clever little movie. This implies that it's on the lighter side, a slight piece of work, when that is not the case at all. It evoked Farhadi for me in that it examines all the little ways relationships can go wrong and the often unexpected ways relationships go right. I suspect Right Now, Wrong Then rewards multiple viewings. Looking forward to seeing more of these actors and the director.
This film overthinks the consequences of real life interactions, giving insight in the 'mechanics' of relationships in a society. Interesting. Wonderful meditation on the creative process. Subtle, funny, thoughtful, a bit moving. It can feel like a slog at times, especially if you went in not knowing what to expect, but it's a worthwhile film. I would highly renowned others watch this film. It was amazingly moving
Man will nicht lassen von diesem Film und hätte auch noch gerne eine dritte Version der Geschichte gesehen. Ich fand, daß im Gegensatz zu "Night and Day" die Filmsprache und Story viel konziser geworden sind und die Dialoge sehr sensibel und ausgereift. Ich warte mit Freude auf den nächsten Film.
I loved the twist the director chose to depict through this film. He chose to have a filmmaker and a painter come together to form a unity. I also enjoy the concept of showcasing two realities. I feel as if the film portrays situations that people can relate to, which is probably what makes this movie as impacting as others say it is. I agree, it was a very beautiful and heart-warming film.
A middle age director finds himself with time on his hands. In the film, the director screens one of his movies but this time in reverse. Instead of what was a sweet platonic encounter it becomes a sour sad predatory. This film is a 2 visions of the same story and how subtle changes can affect out comes large and small.
The Harvard Film Archives has a Hong series playing and I saw this the night before it opened in Mubi. I'll watch again - one of his most delightful films. The multiple realities are cleverly conceived. The cluelessness of his male characters is hilarious and awkward. Actress Kim Min-hee is sexy, smart, unique and brilliant. The story is also wrapped up in Hong's personal life - so all the more delectable. Must-see.
