Movie Info

Documentary filmmaking is the secret star of the elegant narrative film Oki's Movie, a quartet of interlocking vignettes by Korean auteur director Hong Sang-soo and one of the most important films in his oeuvre. An official selection of the Venice, Toronto and New York Film Festivals, Oki's Movie follows a young woman as she hikes Seoul's Mount Acha twice, a year apart, accompanied by different boyfriends: first a fellow student, then a professor. She documents the trips and then edits together corresponding locations on the mountain: the parking lot, a small pavilion, a wooden bridge; her juxtapositions are revelatory, both of her relationship with each and of the power of cinema. -- (C) Maysles Institute

As always with Hong's films, Oki's Movie goes through stretches where it seems aimless and self-indulgent, followed by stretches where it's sharp, funny, and poetic.

A curious oddity worthy of multiple viewings and lengthy contemplation, but its tricky formalism makes it less overtly satisfying on an emotional level.

Mr. Hong's casually brilliant feat of storytelling, akin to an ingeniously wrought suite of literary short fiction.

You'll find yourself wanting to immediately go back to the beginning and reassess every conversation, every gesture, every long-held grudge.

If the characterizations are fleeting, the recessive mood is not: Hong's signature observational style is at once offhanded and astute, romantic and lightly chilled.
