Description

Hong Sang-soo is back with another effervescent romance (one of two we are presenting in this year’s MSPIFF lineup), and one that uses its grand title, the name of an unassuming coffee shop, in jest. Mori (played by Japanese actor Ryô Kase) has returned to Seoul after being away for two years to track down Kwon, a woman he is making a second attempt to win over. Told in flashback and in a jumbled chronology, the story rambles alongside Mori as he makes new friends, drinks his evenings away, and contemplates why he is there in the first place.


Press

"With modest means and a limited field of action, Hong achieves a complexity akin to the grand historical meditations of Alain Resnais; steering clear of explicit politics, he conjures revealing attitudes through reverberant—and often comical—details." - New Yorker
