NOBODY’S DAUGHTER HAEWON

DIRECTOR: Hong Sang-soo - SOUTH KOREA

Why does Seoul student Haewon keep dozing off? Is she depressed by her mother’s departure for Canada? Tired of her relationship with her teacher, the fickle—and married—filmmaker Seongjun? Will the events of the coming weeks rouse her from her listlessness, or will she carry on dreaming? With its focus on fraught male-female relationships, mix of gentle comedy and meditative melancholia, and playful way with narrative repetition and fragmentation, this is clearly a Hong Sang-soo film. In Hong’s view of human foibles, the various men hitting on Haewon are again prone to bathos and self-delusion, while she herself is as insecure and indecisive as an Eric Rohmer protagonist. Like those patience-trying heroines, she’s rightly regarded with bemusement and compassion—wherein lie the film’s wit and charm. (90 mins.)

Filmography: The Day a Pig Fell Into the Well (96), Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors (00), Woman on the Beach (06), Like You Know It All (09), The Day He Arrives (11), Our Sunhi (13).
