The Day After

(Geu-hu, Hong Sang-soo, 2017)

“A lovely, intricately fractured story—past and present seamlessly slip into each other.”—Manohla Dargis, New York Times

Few filmmakers have charted the complications of relationships between men and women as obsessively as the extraordinary and prolific Hong Sang-soo, the subject of a 2006 Wex retrospective. His latest feature—the third film he made in 2017!—is a mordantly comic tale of infidelity, compulsion, and mistaken identity shot in black and white and told largely in flashback. A book publisher’s affair with and dismissal of his assistant sets the stage for her replacement, played by the great Kim Min-hee, star of The Handmaiden and many of Hong’s recent films. As she begins dealing with the fallout of her new boss’s life, the film shifts into a heartfelt portrayal of her search for spiritual fulfillment. (92 mins., DCP)
