WOMAN ON THE BEACH - HONG SANGSOO RETRO

  • “A bittersweet accounting of the geography of desire... Wry and tender and delicately melancholic... shows a newly confident filmmaker again working near the top of his form.”
    -NEW YORK TIMES
  • “An immaculately constructed movie. A rueful tale of karmic irony, self-deceived desire, squandered second chances, and unforeseen abandonment.”
    -VILLAGE VOICE
  • “A wonderful, serious-minded romantic comedy-drama. Perhaps the greatest achievement lies in its rhythms, the way it beautifully captures the natural flow of ongoing conversation.”
    -VARIETY

Filmmaker Joong-rae, suffering from writer’s block, takes a trip to the coast with his production designer Chang-wook, who brings along the vivacious Moon-sook. Soon after their arrival, Moon-sook falls for Joong-rae’s advances; however, the fickle hero can’t commit and he awkwardly parts with her. What had been a sardonic Jules and Jim turns into a burlesque Vertigo when Joong-rae returns to the coastal resort and attempts to recreate the original romance with a woman who resembles Moon-sook, until his jilted lover shows up…
