There's a dark romanticism powering Hong Sang-soo's furious, tautly controlled, yet coolly comedic drama.

On The Beach at Night Alone
This film is a part of our Foreign Focus series.
Director: Hong Sang-soo
The newest film from acclaimed filmmaker Hong Sang-soo. Featuring Kim Min-Hee (The Handmaiden) in the role that won her the Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival as an actress seeking solitude in the wake of a heartbreaking affair. Loosely inspired by the filmmaker’s real relationship with Kim (which was extensively documented in Korean tabloids), the film is a revelatory exploration of intimacy and solitude that has been applauded for its brave performances and emotional honesty.
