Movie Info

This offbeat drama from South Korea stars Kim Tae-woo as arthouse film director Ku Kyung-nam, and runs into an old friend named Bu after sitting on the jury at a film festival in a small town. Following a round of drinks, Bu drags Ku to his house and introduces him to his wife; the next day, Ku returns to his hotel following a night of heavy drinking with the couple, and discovers a note from them imploring him to "never come near us again." Unfortunately, Ku has no recollection of the events from the preceding night. Not long after, Ku journeys to Jeju Island for a film lecture and reencounters an old college acquaintance - only to discover that the gentleman married Ku's college sweetheart. He soon receives a secret note from the woman asking him to meet her at her house. Despite initial misgivings and reservations, Ku changes his mind and hearkens off to the rendez-vous. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

The problem is one of familiarity.

Like I know this film in some parts and drags in others

Tedious, tedious movie. A few sparks here and there, but not worth enduring the rest of the movie for.

Mostly more the same bifurcated stuff from Hong, saturated with booze and bad behavior. The dense rhyming structure is like that of Virgin except told in the form of episodic events in late Hong. The Bunuelian touches from Night and Day is incorporated more seamlessly here for confusion and comedic effect. I had some problems with the first half, some of which were too absurd, and lacks the poignancy of the 2nd half.
