An architect is driving his woman, who is a publisher, to the airport and he tells that he intends to move to her house and his office in her basement to save money; however, she tells that she will leave him since she has met another man. They are surprised by a storm and they stay trapped in her apartment. They find a cat in a hole in front of the apartment and the man rescues the animal. Soon their neighbors arrive in the apartment seeking for the cat, but the animal is hidden. Meanwhile they prepare dinner together. Written by

As the other reviewer also has stated, this is a very toned down movie. There are no big emotions to be found here. It seems people are holding back what they are feeling. Which makes for a very appealing and compelling (strangely enough) viewing experience. Shot in a very still manner, it almost feels like it doesn't move forward at all sometimes. But you know it does.
I don't know if I am not a bit biased, because I do have a soft spot for Korean cinema anyway (though I do have some quarrels with a few movies), but I really liked this one. The performances match the narrative and the subtle nuances are there to be found. Not to mention that you can interpret a few things into the movie and it doesn't offer any real easy solutions (which again, I kinda like about it)
