In Front of Your Face

Directed by Hong Sang-soo

Prolific South Korean writer-director Hong Sang-soo shines a delicate spotlight on the beauty of everyday life with another understated character study – In Front of Your Face.

She (Hye-yeong), a celebrated actor, returns to her hometown of Seoul, seemingly carrying a grave secret with her and living from moment to moment. After reconnecting with her sister, She explores the avenues of her past and eventually agrees to meet with a filmmaker who is keen to convince her to join his latest project. Meeting in a bar in downtown Seoul, the pair drink and talk of their lives and creative work – while outside, the rain begins to fall.
