Right Now, Wrong Then, 2015

Hong Sang-soo

Ham Chunsu (Jung Jaeyoung) is an art-film director who has come to Suwon for a screening of one of his movies. He meets Yoon Heejung (Kim Minhee), a fledgling artist. She’s never seen any of his films but knows he’s famous; he’d like to see her paintings and then go for sushi and soju. Every word, every pause, every facial expression, and every movement is a negotiation between revelation and concealment. So they walk the fine line all the way to a tough and mordantly funny end point, at which time... we begin again.

Hong Sang-soo achieves a maximum of layered nuance with a minimum of people, places, and incidents. Enriched by the naturalistic performances of the two leads, Hong’s elegant or eccentric experiments with narrative form, his characteristically subtle camerawork (with gracefully staged long takes accented by a slight pan or a sudden zoom) and unexpected bursts of humour, Right Now, Wrong Then is a delightful addition to Hong’s cinematic catalogue.
