All Critics (29) | Top Critics (14)

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.

Top Critic

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.

A quiet specimen of personal storytelling at its most exciting.

In Between Days plays like a teen movie with all the narration removed.

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.

Audience Reviews for In Between Days


Maybe I just dont have the eye for these kinda films but the ending was just...well, to me that wasnt an ending. I wanted to like it, I really did. I could appreciate the disjointed, quiet, slow-paced quality of the film but I cant say what this film accomplished.

To be quite honest, I was expecting more... it's artistic and beautiful, yet simple.... I found the two lead actors to be honest and sincere, but the movie really did drag.
