Storyline

Quite by accident, a film director arrives in town a day early. With time to kill before his lecture the next day, he stops by a restored, old palace and meets a fledgling artist. She's never seen any of his films, but knows he's famous. They talk. And together, they go to her workshop to look at her paintings, have Sushi and Soju. More conversation follows, and drinks, and then an awkward get-together with friends where all sorts of secrets are revealed. All the while, they may or may not be falling for each other. Then, quite unexpectedly, we begin again, but now things appear somewhat different.

Trivia

Since there is a narrative gimmick to the way the story unfolds, Hong Sang-soo shot the first part of the film, edited it, and then showed it to the actors, so the actors were aware of how the situation was structured, even if their characters in the second part are not. Then he began shooting the second part. See more »

Crazy Credits

Title card of the film is seen twice. In the first place, it reads as 'Right Then, Wrong Now'; and in the second (an hour into the film) as 'Right Now, Wrong Then'. See more »

Time travelling

Too bad that reading the back cover of the Grasshopper blu ray reveals as much of the plot as it does. Thankfully the rewards of this film stem from the execution: whereas the two principles in the first rendering seem flawed, and the director cruel and manipulative, and the girl sad and naïve, the second take shows the two in a much better light. When the director embarrasses his hosts, the outcome is much different, as is the aftermath of the lecture the director has come to deliver.

Having seen so many action jammed films from Korea - which are so chauvinistic - it is interesting to see Koreans portrayed as quiet, conservative and relentlessly polite in observing the ceremonies of their society. Sounds like we Canadians! Suwon does exist, and there is a lot to do there as a tourist.

The film is recommended for those who relish Asian film; I hope that your local library carries this film, too.
