Drama

Synopsis

The first snow has fallen over Seoul. Munho, a young art professor, is catching up with his friend Hunjoon, a broke filmmaker who has just returned from the United States. After a few drinks, they decided to track down Sunhwa, a young girl they were both in love with a few years earlier.

Our take

Hong Sang-soo’s delicate and tranquil Woman Is the Future of Man was the Korean master’s first feature to open theatrically in the U.S. following its Cannes premiere. A melancholic story of memory and longing, Hong uses his measured touch and mosaic of viewpoints to unearth candid human emotions.
