Audience Reviews for Ad Lib Night
Yoon-ki Lee is a slice-of-life, sit back and observe kind of auteur, a method that provided great results when he directed Kim Jisu in "This Charming Girl." There is no one of quite that caliber here. Han Hyo-ju is charming, if perhaps a little too low-key, but the film focuses on many of her ad-lib family members, spreading the interest too thin. Her revelation at the end is like a post-script, an afterthought more than a motivation.
Well acted and low key drama with some nice naturally lit photography. The scenes in which the family and neighbors mourns the dying man in all their phoniness was funny, like something that Imamura would have done. Aesthetically this was quite underwhelming though. There are too many closeups and shot-reverse-shot cutting. Somehow the revelation at the end felt kind of cheap and sentimental, I would have prefer if it was revealed in a more subtle manner or if the film concentrated on her more. Nonetheless it was still fairly enjoyable.
