Protracted Korean drama.
17 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Long and inexplicably motivated film from the director of "Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors" and "Woman on the Beach", played largely in one shot one scene, with image variation derived from zooming and panning. Beethoven under the captions, hand lettered on silk, signals that it's a serious work.

Artist (he draws clouds) Yeong-ho Kim had to flee Korea for France. We find him impoverished in Paris, sharing an eleven bed room with fellow nationals and making weepy cell 'phone calls to his wife back home. He becomes involved with three women from the Korean expat. community. Despite the fact that our rumpled hero gets interchangeable, appealing women pregnant (his trip to the Pharmacie is rendered ineffective by not knowing the word for condom) there's no skin and licking the exposed toes of the lady of his choice is as raunchy as it gets.

A closer reading might tell us something about Koreans abroad but the incentive isn't there to examine the lengthy piece that closely.

Much taking coffee in street front cafes. The action is played mainly in undistinguished Paris streetscapes, though we do pan off for a shot of Invalides at one point.
