Dir. Lee Kang-hyun. South Korea. 2017, 132 mins. In Korean with English subtitles. Original-language title: Eol-gul-deul. A high school administrator develops an interest in a student who is on the soccer team. A young woman quits her job to help her mother open a restaurant. A local delivery man becomes a link between the different characters in Lee Kang-hyun’s deceptively gentle narrative, a Korean narrative debut that announces the arrival of a significant new talent. A study in the obsession and longing as they are experienced in daily life, this sharply observed film is filled with a quiet naturalism that may reflect director Lee’s roots in documentary. North American premiere.
