Review

A thirty-something actress marries an assistant director on impulse but soon gets divorced. Even after divorce, the two works together as partners. When they make a film based on their love story, they argue. Each claim the ownership of their memory of love and even split the screenplay. All by herself, she confronts her old fear from childhood and finds a new exit in her career and relationship. Cho attempts to reveal strong emotions from microscopic events but often seems hesitant in storytelling. She keeps a certain distance with her characters, which is neither close nor distant. This may be her way of accepting their weakness and shortcomings. It leaves a good-spirited impression. (KIM Youngjin)
