Product Description

A film director who no longer makes films, Seongjun, arrives in Seoul to meet a close friend. When the friend doesn't show up, Seongjun wanders the city aimlessly. He runs into an actress he used to know, shares a drink with some film students and against his better judgment, heads to his ex-girlfriend's apartment. The next day goes very much like the last; Seongjun meets the actress, has drinks with friends, and falls for a woman who looks remarkably like his ex-girlfriend. Each new day plays out like a copy of the previous one, but only Seongjun knows why. Infused with a playfulness and dry wit that recalls the films of Woody Allen and Eric Rohmer, The Day He Arrives is a delightful meditation on relationships, filmmaking, and the unknowable forces that govern our lives.

Review

"At his best and his new movie, The Day He Arrives," is among his very best Hong offers a strange mixture of magic, mystery, rueful melodrama and dry comedy that s like absolutely nothing else." --Andrew O'Hehir, Salon

"A beautiful and melancholy film... I fell into a sympathetic reverie with this film." --Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Brilliant and touching." --Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Format: DVD
"The Day He Arrives" is a wonderful film and could serve as a great introduction to the films of the Korean indie filmmaker Hong Sang-soo, for those who feel the need to start at the beginning of a artist work in order to understand what they are doing currently. Despite being his 12 feature film, it embodies the ideas and feeling the director has been striving for throughout his career. Simple action, intricate yet subdued dialogue and beautiful B/W photography of everyday scene, all with the smallest hint of the surreal. Hong Sang-soo is an individual quickly gaining notice in international cinema and "The Day He Arrives" is a great place to start for one who desires to delve into something new and exciting in film. Strongly recommended! 제가 강하게 추천하던 영화다.

Here we have a man who has thought things out. The aggressive male is a dying paradigm. In this film and in real life, actor Yu Jun-Sang, embodies 'real man'.

Following Hong's films is a joy.
