Alcohol, memory and longing are an unpredictable combination in this low-key comedy from South Korean filmmaker Hong Sang-soo. Jo Munkyung (Kim Sangkyung) and Bang Jungshik (Yu Jungshik) are two close friends with a passion for filmmaking -- Jo is a movie director who's between projects, and Bang reviews films for a living. Jo has decided to leave South Korea and relocate to Canada, and since they share a taste for alcohol as well as cinema, they get together for a few drinks, sharing memories before Jo takes his leave. When they discover they've both paid a visit to the coastal town of Tong-yung recently, they swap stories about their experiences, not thinking that their individual experiences color their perceptions and that they're acquainted with most of the supporting characters in each other's stories. Their memories become especially tricky when it comes to women -- Bang currently divides his time between a wife and a mistress, while Jo is faithful but sorely tempted. Ha Ha Ha won the "Un Certain Regard" prize at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
