It's a rich work that is by turns contemplative and comic.
Hong is quietly preoccupied with the value of living authentically; you have to give him credit for continuing to find new angles on a story he's told ad nauseam.
Hong is well aware of his formula, and his cheeky new movie pokes terrific fun at the tired criticisms.
Despite the fact that not much of actual consequence happens during "Right Now, Wrong Then," Hong does much more right here than he does wrong.
Mr. Jung is equally credible as a diffident, sensitive artist and an impatient boor, and Ms. Kim slides nimbly from demure to obnoxious.
In fact, there are many differences, some of them merely playful but others profound.
Quantum physics meets the French New Wave in "Right Now, Wrong Then"...
This doubled up story is thoughtful, introspective, and reflective on how subtle changes can affect outcomes large and small.
A caressing melody film based on exposition of the subject and a single rough variation, a disjunctive and arborescent exercise. [Full review in Spanish]
This film is actually two different versions of the same story, one slightly more agreeable than the other, about a romantic encounter between two people, both artists, over a two day period in Korea.
I'm not one of Hong's diehard followers, but this movie's likely a great place to start if you've never seen one of his films.
Ultimately, the whole suggests that Sang-soo is more interested in art for art's sake than in communicating with his audience.
