A wise and gently absurdist allegory about how best to approach relationships.

The dialogue is as sharp and multifaceted as ever, and the supporting work provides quite a bit of levity.

Witty, strange and hard.

... Hong Sang-soo makes the best movie of the year. Just like every year. [Full review in Spanish]

... Yourself and Yours is closer to a Rohmerian moral tale, with a single narrative track containing a situation that leads to personal self-discovery.

September 29, 2017 | Full Review…

By re-asserting Min-jung's agency throughout, Hong toys with those who accuse him of complacency. Here behavioural response and re-evaluation is felt, rather than studied.

Audience Reviews for Yourself and Yours


Ignore the over-dramatic and over glamorization of Korean Soap Opera Drama and indulge in some small piece of South Korean Cinema that's more realist than aimed at popular crowds. Sang-soo Hong has made a very ordinary but relatable account of ordinary lives caught up in intermingling conflicts of domestic issues. Taking on the style of the not at all glamorous Sang-Soo's scripting even makes great use of it's actor's chemistry and structure throughout the film's run time. It's the type of Adult cinema older people would be more accustomed with even when coming from someone who is very well versed in South Korean Cinema of the noughties until today. I enjoyed the natural effect the film gave off as did the scripting and dialogue in particular, it just goes to show South Korean can make more contemporary tales without trying to be radical or glamorous.
