Although Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind may be the most well-known of Michel Gondry’s films, Café Gondry seems to take most of its inspiration from The Science of Sleep. That may be because Kevin Yoon, the café’s owner, was once a programmer at Sponge House Films (an arthouse theater) who brought this particular movie, as well as several others, into Korea. Thanks to Kevin’s background, the café has many directors, such as Hou Hsiao-Hsien and Hong Sang-soo, who come in for casual coffees or to do interviews. The café also serves great lattes during the day and cheesy nachos to pair with craft beer at night.
