South Korea, 2012
Directed by Hong Sang-soo
Starring Isabelle Huppert, Joon-Sang Yoo, Yu-mi Jung, Youn Yuh-jung
Approx. 90 min. DCP.

“Like many other films by the sly and prolific South Korean director Hong Sang-soo, IN ANOTHER COUNTRY is at once a comedy of manners and an oblique commentary on the power of cinema to expose and alter reality. Its three chapters, each a little under a half-hour long, are scenarios dreamed up by an aspiring young screenwriter (Jung Yumi) in the midst of some vague family trouble. The movies she writes, which we see enacted on the screen (with Ms. Jung as a helpful neighbor), are variations on some of Mr. Hong’s favorite themes: social awkwardness, sexual frustration and the selfishness of Korean men.” – The New York Times, A.O. Scott


“Huppert has described working with Hong as ‘unexpected and original’ – a fairly good description for his work, as well”
