Gangbyeon Hotel Trailer (2018)



Description: Two tales intersect at a riverside hotel: an elderly poet (Ki Joo-bong), invited to stay there for free by the owner, summons his two estranged sons, sensing his life drawing to a close and a young woman (Kim Min-hee) nursing a recently broken heart is visited by a friend who tries to console her. At times these threads overlap, at others they run tantalizingly close to each other. Using a stark black-and-white palette and handheld cinematography (with frequent DP Kim Hyungkoo), Hong crafts an affecting examination of family, mortality, and the ways in which we attempt to heal wounds old and fresh.
