HAHAHA (2010) [feature]

South Korea (MIFF 2010 , Neighbourhood Watch)
Director: Hong Sangsoo

“For Hong's fans as well as art film-inclined audiences coming to his films new, this is as tangy and refreshing as sangria.” - Hollywood Reporter

Receiving the top prize in the Un Certain Regard section of this year's Cannes Film Festival, South Korea's premier auteur and MIFF mainstay Hong Sangsoo (Woman on the Beach, MIFF 07; Like You Know It All, MIFF 09) delivers a new installment in a human comedy at once funny and serious.

Familiar themes of booze, sex and male immaturity remain intact as old friends Mun-kyeong and Jung-sik unite for a catch-up after a good few years between drinks. Recounting their most recent summer-time debaucheries, a series of uncanny coincidences become apparent.
