Korean indie “Come, Closer” marks the debut feature from director Kim Jong Kwan, a winding exploration of love and modern relationships, focusing specifically on the pain of breaking up. Drifting through a series of scenes of couples experiencing various difficulties and realisations, the film is an ensemble piece with a cast headed by popular actress Jung Yoo Mi (recently in master indie director Hong Sang Soo’s “Oki’s Movie”), and various musical types including singer-turned actor Yoon Kye Sang (Lovers of Six Years) and indie singer Yozoh. Like most Korean indie productions, the film took the festival circuit release route, having played at Pusan in 2010. The film kicks off with coffee shop worker Su Jin (Kim Hyo Seo) taking a random call from a Polish man in Rotterdam, who tells her the story of his missing fiancé, before moving into a series of vaguely interlinked segments revolving around a group of young urbanites. »
