Critic Reviews for In Between Days
This superb debut feature by Korean-American director So Yong Kim seems to be constructed entirely of the ineffable and intangible, those fleeting moments that most movies treat as throwaways.
This artfully muted film pays off with a desperate act of eloquence.
Kim keeps dialogue to a minimum and provides the barest of story arcs, using a handheld camera to probe subtle shifts of emotion in her nonprofessional actors.
While Kim is unable to keep us riveted on her near-silent performance, the script and direction have a gentle sensitivity, subtly addressing cultural divisions while reminding us that angst, at least, is universal.
Centering on a young immigrant Korean girl in Toronto, this Sundance indie marks the feature debut of a gifted female director.
There's an authenticity about this work that gives it a chilling flavor.
In Between Days is a wise and beautiful study of yearning and repression.
The film has an admirable humanist agenda, but good intentions don't matter much when you can't care for the humans on the screen.
A touching and personal story that captures the swirling emotions of adolescence and the immigrant experience - and the heartbreak of being in the middle of both.
[It] feels honest and direct, which is more than you can say about a lot of movies these days.
Too minimalist for its own good when it comes to story details and even essential basic factual information, In Between Days can best be described as a skillfully lensed missed opportunity.
In Between Days is a small slice of a suspended life, intimate and filled with the mundane details most people forget when the waiting is over and their real lives begin.
In Between Days is shot in a documentary-like style, but some of the artistic decisions do not always work in the film's favor.
