OKI'S MOVIE

South Korea, 2010 (MIFF 2011, Accent on Asia)

Director: Hong Sang-soo

OKI'S MOVIE

Sex, lies and filmmaking.

In Oki's Movie, Hong Sang-soo (Hahaha, MIFF 2010; Night and Day, MIFF 2009), presents a love triangle told in four chapters. The woman at the centre of the affair is Oki, a university student majoring in film and simultaneously wrestling with the romantic expectations of two very different men: an older professor and a former filmmaking student.

As one of the prime custodians of new Korean cinema, Hong does what he does best in this time-shifting sequence of dizzyingly self-reflexive stories about filmmaking, awkward romantic entanglements and alcohol-soaked escapades. Strange but compelling, Oki's Movie is a darkly comic, complex testament to the idea of film as art.

"The work of a self-assured artist unafraid to expose the inner worlds of his characters to reveal their flawed humanity." - Toronto International Film Festival
