Legendary French actress Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher, 8 Women, La cérémonie, and the current Amour) stars in the first English-language film from South Korean master Hong Sang-soo (Hahaha, The Day He Arrives, Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Woman on the Beach). The Village Voice calls the film "the love child Antonioni and Hou Hsiao-hsien never had." In a triptych of overlapping stories, three different French women (a filmmaker, an adulterer and a divorce - Huppert, Huppert … More

Critic Reviews for In Another Country

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (4) | DVD (1)

By the time its third story kicked in, "In Another Country" lost me.

Full Review… | January 31, 2013
Seattle Times
Top Critic

If you take the film as the bauble it is, you'll be entertained by its lighthearted wit, social observations and resolute sidestepping of profundity.

Full Review… | January 25, 2013
San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

A beguiling set of variations on a theme, a gossamer-light étude composed for delight rather than dissection.

Full Review… | January 11, 2013
Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

Isabelle Huppert has reached that magical point where she gives a thrill of delight simply by showing up, her decades of great performances seeming to hover around her like a halo.

New York Post
Top Critic

A movie may be a representation of the world, but it is also something that happens in the world, which means that sustaining a cinematic illusion and breaking it are equally beside the point.

New York Times
Top Critic

In Another Country sets its characters adrift inside its own narrative sphere, letting them live several lives in the course of an hour and a half, and letting us share in their freedom.

NPR
Top Critic

An intriguing little cross-cultural curio that plays like a woozy, jazz-improv riff on romantic futility and destiny.

Full Review… | February 7, 2013
Shared Darkness

Isabelle Huppert has an inviting, steady glow in Hong Sang-soo's loosey-goosey, humorously light celebration of the French star, cinema's possibilities, and his colorful, endlessly combative homeland.

Full Review… | November 9, 2012
Film Journal International

Hong Sang-soo hits the beach once again in his latest project, another austerely amusing study of hopeless neurotics making a mockery of leisure.

Full Review… | November 5, 2012
Slant Magazine

An arty, though not particularly artful, experiment

Full Review… | October 20, 2012
Movie Habit

Hong has fun zooming, panning, and toying with structure and narrative repetition, though the film doesn't have the powerful undercurrent of regret typical of his best work.

Full Review… | May 30, 2012
France24

Hong's film rejoices in the capricious nature of romance and the samsaric ebb and flow of life, and it makes confusion woozily pleasurable.

Full Review… | May 22, 2012
Daily Telegraph

Yet another loving tribute by Hong Sangsoo to French cinema, somewhere between inconsequential and flimsy but pleasant to watch all through.

Full Review… | May 21, 2012
Screen International

It is amusing and exasperating, with the amusing part just about in the ascendant. Mostly.

Audience Reviews for In Another Country

In order to get her mind off her uncle ruining her family and forcing them all to live in the street in an undesirable neighborhood, Won-ju(Jung Yoo-mi) distracts herself by writing a three part screenplay, all centered around a different Anne(all played by Isabelle Huppert) visiting a seaside village in Korea in the offseason. Blue Anne is a film director. Red Anne is in town to have an affair with Jong-soo(Kwon hae-hyo), a film director. Park Sook(Yoon Yeo-jeong) takes her friend Green Anne to the village to heal after her husband leaves her for another woman.

On a meta level, "In Another Country" is an intriguing proposition with Won-ju writing herself into her own screenplay, possibly being inspired by this reality's Isabelle Huppert which is why she keeps showing up. However, in detailing each of the Anne's different effects on the people she encounters, especially a wacky lifeguard(Yoo Jun-sang), the movie feels slight, suffering from a terminal lack of ambition, coupled with a certain lack of filmmaking style.
