"As bracing as a brief dip in a freezing sea after a rather too soju-soaked luncheon."—Jessica Kiang, Variety

"There is an unmistakable and mature film-making language on display: a simplicity and charm.'"—Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"Hong is such a subtle artist, such a master of economy, that even the lighting of a cigarette, or a hug that looks more like two people trying not to fall over, vibrates with inner meaning.'"—Lee Marshall, Screen International

Youngho (Shin Seokho) goes to see his father who is tending to a famous patient. He surprises his girlfriend, Juwon (Park Miso), in Berlin where she is studying fashion design. He goes to a seaside hotel to meet his mother and brings his friend Jeongsoo (Ha Seongguk) with him. In each instance, he anticipates an important conversation. But sometimes a shared look, or a shared smoke, can mean as much as anything we could say to those close to us. For his twenty-fifth feature as director and his first as cinematographer, Hong Sangsoo offers a simple tale of young people on the edge of adulthood. Introduction cuts to the essence of who we are as people, like an unexpected hug on a winter's day.
