See another standout feature from the acclaimed Korean director (Woman on the Beach) in this special limited engagement.

“Laugh-out-loud hilarious…one of the most acute depictions of male sexual desire.”—Glenn Kenny, The Auteurs

“Unexpectedly charming.… A convincing portrait of baffled masculinity and lost-boy lust.” –Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

A South Korean painter impulsively bunks down in a run-down lodge in Paris to temporarily flee trouble back home. While in France, this stranger in a strange land misses his wife, wanders the streets, and finds himself entangled in the complicated romances and friendships of a groups of Korean expatriates (many of whom are, conveniently, pretty young women). The events in Night and Day, as in other films by Hong Sang-soo, are all relatively ordinary, but they’re told with a strikingly unflinching eye for detail and truth—and a wry and ruthless sense of humor. (144 mins., 35mm)

Often compared to the late, great French New Wave filmmaker Eric Rohmer, Hong is one of cinema’s most astute portrayers of male-female relationships and the hapless workings of the male mind. He was named one of the top 20 directors of the past decade by Film Comment magazine and was the subject of a complete retrospective at the Wexner Center in 2006.

Night and Day was commissioned by the famed Musée d’Orsay in Paris as part of the same series that produced Olivier Assayas’s Summer Hours and Hou Hsiao-hsien’s Flight of the Red Balloon.
