In Another Country (Free Korean Film at the Freer Gallery)

The great French actress Isabelle Huppert stars as three different women visiting the Korean resort town of Mohan in this triptych of tales from director Hong Sang-soo (The Day He Arrives; Woman is the Future of Man). Huppert plays a filmmaker on a working vacation, a married businesswoman having an affair with a Korean director, and a divorcée recovering from her ex-husband’s infidelity. Each of her characters encounters a revolving cast of costars, including a charming, goofy, and extremely unhelpful lifeguard played by the hilarious Yoo Jun-sang. Hong, whose talent for experimentation and wit has earned him comparisons to Woody Allen and Michelangelo Antonioni, frames these stories as rough drafts of a screenplay written by yet another young woman visiting the resort. The result is a set of delightful, brilliantly constructed variations on a theme. (Dir.: Hong Sang-soo, France/Korea, 2012, 89 min., English and Korean with English subtitles)
