An unremarkable man in his forties spends a weekend at a South Korean coastal resort with a female acquaintance. They talk, eat, and, though both are married elsewhere, have sex. So little ‘happens’ that we must pay close attention to every tiny detail, though the couple’s lengthy conversations are as banal as the decor of their hotel room. Using austere b/w digital video, writer/director Park Ki-Yong observes the pair with ostentatiously protracted takes that owe more to video installation art than conventional cinema. Adventurous souls willing and able to adjust to Park’s rhythms may be absorbed and rewarded.
