Driving With My Wife's Lover (2007)
This beautifully stylized feature debut from Korean director Kim Tai-sik begins with a straightforward story line that revolves around marital infidelity and a scorned husband's quest for revenge, but quickly evolves into a rich and layered journey toward self-discovery. After realizing that his wife has been cheating on him, mild-mannered stamp maker Tae-han leaves his small seaside town of Naksan determined to track down his wife's lover, a taxicab driver from Seoul named Joong-sik. During one of the most intense heat waves on record, he travels to the city, where he successfully finds his target and hires him for a long-distance cab ride back to Naksan. As they drive down the highway, Tae-han refrains from revealing his secret to his new rival, and an unlikely bond develops between the two men. When they are faced with a series of unexpected detours along the way, Tae-han finds ample time to reassess his devious plans as the similarities and differences between the two men begin to surface. Far more than just a quirky road trip through South Korea, Driving With My Wife's Lover is an intricately crafted character study that paints an intimate and vivid picture while remaining refreshingly simple at its core. -- Sundance Film Festival … More
