Night and Day

Dir: Hong Sangsoo

South Korea


145 mins



Kim Youngho, Park Eunhye, Hwang Sujung

Paranoid that the Korean cops are about to arrest him for smoking dope, painter Sungnam flees to Paris and holes up in a hostel with other émigrés. Between calls to his wife back home, he fights off an old flame (now unhappily married and eager to start over) and finds himself falling for a young art student. This sardonic comedy has a retrospective edge (a pig puts in an ominous appearance), but the Paris setting refreshes Hong’s characteristic themes.
