The Woman Who Ran (2020)

Hong Sang-soo directs Kim Min-hee, Lee Eun-mi and Song Seon-mi in this Korean arthouse drama where a woman takes a break from her husband to visit three old friends, only for an overbearing man to interrupt each catch-up.

One joke told three times over, each time at length. There’s a stunning feral cat in the first segment. Everyone has some nice drinks and snacks. The conversations are self consciously non-important mumbling with vague allusions to gender expectations and happiness. I don’t think there’s going to be a movie that ever unlocks this particular director’s work for me.
