HOTEL BY THE RIVER

[GANGBYUN HOTEL 강변 호텔]
The latest feature from Hong Sang-soo follows two interconnected storylines set in and around a quiet hotel in winter. In one, an aging poet (Ki Joo-bong) is visited by his estranged adult sons. In the other, a young woman (Kim Min-hee, GRASS, THE HANDMAIDEN, ON THE BEACH AT NIGHT ALONE), with an unexplained wound on her hand, holes up with a friend to recover from a bad breakup. HOTEL BY THE RIVER prompted Giovanna Fulvi of the Toronto International Film Festival to enthuse, "Hong Sang-soo possesses a singular mastery for blending the mundane with the cosmic and the minutiae of human foibles with ageless queries into the riddles of time's passage." (Note courtesy of the Freer|Sackler.) DIR/SCR/PROD Hong Sang-soo. South Korea, b&w, 2018, 96 min. In Korean with English subtitles. NOT RATED
