In Another Country
Directed by Hong Sang-soo • 2012 • South Korea
Starring Isabelle Huppert, Yu Jun-sang, Jung Yu-mi
Legendary French actress Isabelle Huppert stars in the first English-language film from South Korean master Hong Sang-soo. In a triptych of overlapping stories, three different French women—a filmmaker, an adulterer, and a divorcée (played by Huppert, Huppert, and . . . Huppert)—visit a small Korean resort town and encounter a flirtatious director, a lovestruck lifeguard, and far too much soju. A tale of love, lust, and misunderstanding, IN ANOTHER COUNTRY is an effortless, laugh-out-loud comedy that plays like a lost French New Wave classic.
