Movie Info

In Claire's Camera, a philandering film director is again a major plot point and Kim Minhee, again the star. But this time the mood is light and airy as a summer breeze, thanks in large part to a lively performance from Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher, Elle). Huppert plays Claire, a school teacher with a camera that might be magical on her first visit to Cannes. She happens upon a film sales assistant, Manhee (Kim), recently fired from her job and also meets So Wansoo (Jung Jinyoung), a film director whose one-night stand with Manhee was the reason for her firing. Beneath the humor and charm on the surface of Claire's Camera, Hong explores the power of images to transform us. "The only way to change things," says Claire, "is to look at them again very slowly."


Critic Reviews for Claire's Camera (La caméra de Claire)

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2)

A short and sweet divertissement with a few profound punchlines.

A trifle compared to such recent Hong highs as "Right Now, Wrong Then" and "On the Beach at Night Alone," but a complete work on its own light terms.

Among the festival's hotbed of flashy new talent is one of South Korea's most modestly skilled and long established filmmakers; a self-effacing master hiding in plain sight.

Some might be amused by the goofy nature of Claire's Camera, but with a bit more polish and fleshing out, this could've been a real heartwarming escapade.

August 29, 2017 | Full Review…

The direction in Claire's Camera is less elaborate, reflecting the on-the-fly conditions of its production. The film's pleasures lie more in the improvisational feel of the dialogues and the charming chemistry between the characters.

There's far worse ways to spend 69 minutes than in the company of his characters as they amble through sunny Cannes idly chatting about love and life, disappointment and fulfillment.
