The Power of Kangwon Province

Dir: Hong Sangsoo

South Korea


108 mins



Baek Jonghak, Oh Yunhong, Kim Yuseok

Kangwon is Korea’s East-coast resort province, and the film presents two seemingly distinct stories about residents of Seoul taking short breaks there, one after the other. It gradually becomes apparent that the protagonists of these stories are ex-lovers who have never quite got over each other – and that the stories in fact occur within more or less the same time-frame. A brilliant piece of modernist storytelling which cuts to the heart of the way we understand characters.
