You surprised me!
2 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After being impressed with all of the works I've seen from Korean director Sang-Soo Hong I am sad to say that this disappointed me. As much as I appreciate his minimalistic approach to filmmaking I think that, after seeing the same techniques used in four consecutive films, his style is waning on me. Despite that, I did enjoy the plot and it's always interesting to see how Hong approaches filmmaker characters – in this case a female. An impressive performance from Isabelle Huppert too who seems to be doing just about anything she's given.

Hong displays the same themes as he always does: relationships, infidelity and alcoholism – and there are no qualms from me in terms of his improvisational skills when it comes to screenplays. In typical style for the filmmaker he repeats scenes, dialogue, characters and locations but this time there is a plot point that elevates the repetition – in actuality this is a film about a film and we see the scenes acted out as the female filmmaker character puts her self into her work.

Overall it is a good film but, as I mentioned before, I was disappointed simply because his techniques are beginning to become a little tiresome.
