Kwon returns to Seoul from the mountains and is given a packet of letters from Mori back from Japan to propose to her. Kwon drops and scatters the undated letters. She reads them and has to make sense of the chronology - and so must we?
The fine line between art and nonsense has been crossed in this movie. In terms of script it is on the level of an average TV drama. However, even a viewer with basic knowledge of cinema would notice awkward framing. Endless shots with flood of dialogue show authors ambition to portrait authentic situations from everyday life. But when in one of them the camera guided by an unapt hand first swings and then zooms in without any connection to the scene, i lost the sympathy for this movie.
The main character is somewhat lovable and obviously in some kind of introspective dwelling (writer's block, mid-life crisis or simply boredom). The most interesting moments are when he meets other people and the way they react to him, since he is a famous author.
Watch only if you're a movie buff.
