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.
