Based on a short story by Haruki Murakami, this critically acclaimed South Korean film tells the story of Jong-soo, a part-time worker who bumps into old neighbour Hae-mi.
She asks him to look after her cat while she’s on a trip to Kenya, but when she returns, Hae-mi introduces Ben (STEVEN YEUN – The Walking Dead) to Jong-soo.
One day, Ben visits Jong-soo with Hae-mi and confesses his own secret hobby.
“This sense of surprise and inevitability is a hallmark of truly masterful writing (from Lee and co-writer Oh Jung-mi and such skillful direction that it feels like you’re suspended within the story in an invisible tangle of glances and exchanges, secrets and lies, tricks and cruelties and lucky shafts of reflected sunlight.” BFI / Sight and Sound
