The title references Marcel Duchamp because this is a splintered narrative, founded on radically different points of view about the same events. The 24-year-old Sujeong steels herself to surrender her virginity to gallery owner Jaehoon, who was introduced to her by her married (but amorous) boss Youngsoo. But very little tallies in their respective memories of what brought them to this point…Hong’s funny valentine of a film reinvents the rom-com in cubist terms.
