It almost seems as if Hong is poking fun at his own single-minded oeuvre, creating a fractal representation of how his other films obliquely interrelate.

It's a fairly banal comment on foreign estrangement (or love) that could have used some roughing up.

An arty, though not particularly artful, experiment

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

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.

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.

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

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

The presence of Huppert in this one suggests an interest in branching out beyond the cult faithful.

Hong Sang-soo's intricate new comedy of broken romance reaches exquisite heights of self-mocking pathos, painterly finesse, and symbolic density.

The cumulative impression is of figures being lightly traced in the sand only to be inevitably washed away, intentionally ephemeral and quite charming for it.

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.

Shared Darkness

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

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

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.

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

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.

It is - for all its charms, and despite Hong's trademark formal experimentation -- ultimately rather lightweight stuff.

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

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.
