Yeojaneun namjaui miraeda (Woman Is the Future of Man). 2004. South Korea/France. Written and directed by Hong Sang-soo. In Korean; English subtitles. 87 min.
This fifth feature by the South Korean director of Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors radiates a distinct New Wave vibe with its droll, pointed account of two old friends, an academic and a filmmaker, who meet again after a long separation and decide to spend an evening with a woman they both dated (and mistreated) years earlier. Although she has moved on, the men seem stuck in the past, trying to atone for forgotten transgressions. Courtesy New Yorker Films and Finecut.
