Woman on the Beach - Online Screenings

Friday, June 19, 2020

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… Directed by Hong Sangsoo. NR / 127 min. Korean w/ subtitles. A new 4K restoration completed by the Korean Film Archive from the original 35mm negative. “A wicked comedy of manners.” — A.O. Scott, The New York Times “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.” — Todd McCarthy, Variety
