South Korean filmmaker Park Chanok’s feature debut is an intelligent portrait of a young man whose personal life is out of control. Recently dumped by his girlfriend, Lee Won-sang (Hae-il Park) undertakes to write a magazine article on Marguerite Duras, then discovers that his ex was having an affair with the magazine’s married publisher. On the rebound, he falls for a freelance photographer and gets her a job at the magazine—but then she too is seduced by the publisher. Though the film sometimes slips into soap opera territory, Chanok is an acute observer of the subtle shifts of power in romantic relationships. In Korean with subtitles. 124 min.
