He made his debut with his first feature film, The Day a Pig Fell into the Well, in 1996. Since then, through the 12 films that he has written and directed, Hong has consistently enjoyed using a complex and highly ordered architecture, under a seemingly random surface created by spontaneous circumstances, in depicting his characters. Renowned for his unique cinematographic language and unprecedented esthetics in filmmaking, he is considered to be one of the most established auteurs in contemporary Korean cinema.
In Another Country / Hong Sang-soo
A young film student and her mother run away from the seaside town of Mohang to escape their mounting debt. The young woman begins writing a script for a short film in order to calm her nerves: Three women named Anne appear, and each woman consecutively visits the seaside town of Mohang. The first Anne is a successful film director. The second Anne is a married woman secretly in an affair with a Korean man. The third Anne is a divorcée whose husband left her for a Korean woman. A young woman tends to the small hotel by the Mohang shore owned by her parents. A certain lifeguard can always be seen wandering up and down the beach that lies nearby. Each Anne stays at this small hotel, receives some assistance from the owner’s daughter, and ventures onto the beach where she meets the lifeguard.
