  1. Good review. This sounds a lot like how I found Our Sunhi which was also rambling conversations with different people that, when put together, created all sorts of new ways to view the characters. I think that I’ll give it a watch but it isn’t a priority…

      1. I’ve got Woman is the Future of Man, another of his films but I’ve yet to watch it.

        I’ve seen Ryo Kase in bit parts like in Penance, Retribution and Nobody Knows. He was good in Outrage, a real snake!

      2. I haven’t actually seen any of those. But that’s why I love him – he’s so versatile. He plays a complete creep in Like Someone in Love, Mr. Übercool in「SPEC」, but the most fragile person ever in Arifureta Kiseki.

        In real life, apparently he’s more on the quiet, gentle side.

  2. Ryo Kase, Moon So-ri and Hong Sang-soo seems such a perfect combination. Wonder when we will get to see it in our parts.

    Ha ha yes Ryo should always be a priority!

    1. That’s what I thought when I first heard of the casting. Not surprised that Hong Sang-soo cast Kase, and with Moon So-ri… match made in cinematic heaven.

      Where is “your parts”?

      Hehehe, Kase is definitely always a priority. 😀

      1. Singapore. So close and yet so far in terms of Korean movies screened here. But it will screen at some point or the DVD will be available:)

        1. Hmmm, I’d check festivals. I’d think it pop up there. It’ll get a DVD release probably sooner rather than later – it’s supposed to be getting one in the UK. Most of Hong Sang-soo’s films from the last ten years have been released.
