Heart (2019)

Ga-Young Jeong directs herself, Tae-Hwan Choi, and Seok-Hyeong Lee in this Korean indie comedy where a filmmaker has an affair with the man she doesn’t fancy (but once had a fling with) to avoid starting an affair with the married man she actually is attracted to.

Talky and self reflective, like a Woody Allen or a Hong Sang-soo but not without some nice moments. Does feel a little tenuous even at only 70 minutes long. Ga-Young Jeong has a likeable, frisky enough screen presence that I’d watch her again in something else.
