On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate Regisserad av Hong Sang-soo
Director Hong Sang-soo’s work represents an intellectual undercurrent in recent Korean film… and he has a more penetrating eye than many of his colleagues worldwide. His films are unusually truthful and unsentimental, but he isn’t interested in cruelty or the cheap cynicism most directors indulge in when portraying love gone wrong… Hong manages to make these laconic characters transparent and sympathetic, and each scene is not only beautiful but precisely made.
