Tale of Cinema (2005)

Hong Sang-soo directs Kim Sang-kyung, Uhm Ji-won and Lee Ki-woo in this Korean arthouse drama where a young man watches a film about a suicide pact at a cinema, only to then spy the lead actress he is enamoured with after leaving the screening.

Two parallel stories about feckless men. Pleasurable only when ‘life’ imitates art and shots and locations and awkward emotions are recreated between the actress and her rather pitiful stalker. Some nicely mundane sex scenes stop this from being a complete trudge.
