Oki's Movie



Add +

Korean master Hong Sang-soo's delivers another insightfully funny relationship drama (his specialty), a four-section exploration of a woman, Oki, in love with both a young director and an older professor at her film school. Each segment is presented as its own short movie, complete with opening credits, and separated by renditions of Edward Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstance." The characters assume different levels of prominence in each part (Oki moves from a minor supporting role in the first story to the lead in the last), and Hong never specifies which of the tales, if any, represent reality. But there's validity and truth in each—and as many evasions and falsehoods. Taken together, they give a keenly profound sense of art and life refracting into infinity.—Keith Uhlich
