We've been trying to fit in a movie from South Korean Director Hong Sangsoo for a few years. He has written and directed a series of thoughtful films on universal human themes even though the films are usually set in his milieu of filmmaking. IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE doesn’t break that mold. A Korean actress who has worked in the US returns home to reconnect with family–especially her sister. It isn’t long before it’s clear that this isn’t just any visit home. Soon she has a meeting with a young admirer who wants to feature her in his next film. Don’t look for clever camera angles, shoot-outs, explosions, heart-pounding action, and a full palette of special effects. You won’t find them, but if you’re up to facing a gentle (or maybe not-so gentle) challenge to your assumptions about living life then Hong Sangsoo has something intriguing for you. "Intimate and fluid… a serenely passionate deployment of art as resistance to mortality."—Richard Brody, The New Yorker.

In Korean with English subtitles.
