Overview

Mira in her late 40´s has been living in Paris for around 20 years. Having just divorced her French husband, she decides to visit Korea, and meets her old friends Young-eun and Sung-woo. While having a cheerful time in the bar, Mira goes to the toilet and after she returns, time is reversed back to 19 years ago. It is the day of Mira’s farewell party, before she left to France.

Review

Kim Hee Jung’s fourth film A French Woman is another ghost story following Snow Paths (2015). Ghosts are beings that are in the state of limbo between life and death, conscious and unconscious, dream and reality. The film is held by ghosts and focuses on a depressed woman Mira who lives in the past. Mira puts an end to her life in Paris and returns to Korea. She visits her favorite bar and confronts her past. Between the door, the narration switches back and forth between 2015 and 1997. The director poses questions for the audience. What is behind death? Who can recognize their existence? People around her are all left to the past and only Mira is in her present form. A French Woman represents the time circular. They reach to the truth of time that the past is never gone, therefore the present also cannot exist alone. [JANG Byungwon]

DIRECTOR
KIM Hee Jung
 
Kim Hee Jung studied at the National Film School in Łod? and made her debut with the film Girl Thirteen (2007). The film follows a girl’s groundless conviction to find her real mother, centering on the vacillating identity of a figure who craves something one does not own. Her second film, Grape Candy (2012), repeats Kim’s story of rumination on a past wound. Kim engaged with Jeonju IFF through the film Snow Paths (2015), which she made as a part of the Jeonju Cinema Project. The film depicts a man who visits a country church to treat alcoholism and then overcomes his trauma by meeting a nun in communion with the dead. Her latest film A French Woman traces the delirium of the female protagonist who encounters her past self after she passes through the gate of time. Kim excels at materializing the identity of an unstable drifting being.
