Night and Day (Bam gua nat)
Dir. Hong Sang-soo. 2008, 144 mins. 35mm. With Sabine Crossen, Jérémie Elkhaïm, Gi Ju-bong, Kim Yeong-ho. For strange and seemingly dubious reasons, middle-aged painter Sung-nam flees South Korea and finds himself in a Parisian hostel. The resulting story unfolds as an episodic exploration of emotional and spiritual dislocation in unfamiliar places, and a humorous examination of the troubling timelessness of flight and return.
