Middle-aged couple Heungju and Eunju visit Cheongpyeongsa. Losing Eunju´s mobile, they return to the temple. Staying the night in the town where they spent their first night, they realize what they´ve really lost is not the mobile, but the ´present´.
''Winter´s Night'', the third film of Jang Woo-jin, is a tapestry containing of two stories: one is about a man and his wife wandering around Chuncheon and the other is about a soldier and a woman visiting him in the army. Citing the four pieces in ´Ten?Ox Herding?Pictures´, it divided the phases of the narrative, in which they repeatedly come across each other in limited places and two times of 1988 and 2018 are mysteriously connected through their wandering. The minimal style in one scene-one shot, thoroughly controlled production, and structure difficult to elucidate provides a new experience. After passing time and memories of the characters, Winter´s Night does not reach a comprehensive conclusion. The creative motif of the director is ambitious, trying to describe a reality operated by the elements of life, coincidence and chronology. [JANG Byungwon]
