Storyline

A young man arrives at a hotel for an assignation; she calls to say she's not coming. He is Jae-hoon, she is Soo-jung; they've met through Young-soo, an independent filmmaker. Soo-jung writes for Young-soo; Jae-hoon may finance his film project. From varying points of view in two long parallel flashbacks, we see what precedes the hotel date. Details differ, and each account includes events missing from the other. Characters are quiet and self-contained, then animated; victims apologize. Each character frequently asks, "Really?" What has really happened? Is one account more accurate? Is a kiss the most enjoyable and promising human contact? Connections are tenuous and fragile. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The English title "The Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors" is a reference to Marcel Duchamp's glass artwork "The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even" made between 1915 and 1923. Like the film, the work of art is split into two halves: the upper belonging to the bride and the lower belonging to the bachelors. Also as in the movie, their relationship is ambiguous but presumably sexual. See more »

Universality and complexity of human relationships
16 February 2018 | by BlissQuestSee all my reviews

The director has a knack for dissecting (or exposing) the human psychology, especially when it comes to sexual or relationship encounters in general. The nuances that we all experience intimately, but rarely discuss, are ever-present in his films, which is an aspect I enjoy. I also enjoy his minimalist approach to film making. Again, the meat of the story is about the relationships between people, so make-up and stunts are almost non-existent. I read somewhere that the director really likes the idea of spontaneity, and this is especially evident when he casts the extras. Watch how the extras look and behave like "normal" people. In other words, their roles are not contrived or over-played. If you enjoyed other works of this director (Sang-soo Hong), then this is a must see.
