Movie Info

Three Asian filmmakers present short stories of journeys that don't go as expected in this anthology feature. South Korean director Hong Sang-Soo contributes Lost In The Mountains, in which a young woman named Mi-Sook decides to pay an unannounced visit to her friend Jin-Young, a classmate from college. During her visit, Mi-Sook discovers Jin-Young has been having an affair with one of her professors. Mi-Sook pretends to be offended that Jin-Young is sleeping with a married man, but she's more deeply hurt by the fact she was involved with the same man. Koma, from Japanese filmmaker Naomi Kawase, follows Kang Jun-Il as he takes a trip to a small village in the countryside. Kang Jun-Il's grandfather has recently died, and he's been asked to carry out his last wish and take a rare Buddhist scroll back to the temple where it belongs. While Kang Jun-Il isn't sure how he feels about the ritual, the voyage brings him good fortune. And Butterflies Have No Memories by Lav Diaz of the Philippines concerns a beautiful and glamorous woman who comes back to the mining village where she was born. Not everyone is happy to see her, though, and several angry townspeople hatch a get-rich-quick scheme that involves holding their visitor hostage. The three segments of Visitors were produced under commission from South Korea's Jeonju Film Festival, where a similar program is featured each year.
