EAFFI 2024: WALK UP

Director: Hong Sang-soo

97 mins, South Korea, 2022, Digital, Subtitled

Walk Up is the 28th feature from prolific South Korean favourite Hong Sang-soo. This is a delightful, humorous, existential drama, where time circles elliptically and the story unfolds up and down in the floors of a Seoul apartment building. Byungsoo, a well-known filmmaker, visits old friend Ms. Kim with his daughter Jeongsu, an aspiring interior designer. Ms. Kim is an interior designer and owner of a beautiful four-story building that houses her office, a restaurant and cooking studio, and two apartments. After much talk and drinks, she offers to rent out an apartment to Byungsoo. Always witty and playful, Hong revisits themes close to his heart – love, friendship, art, career, cinema, family and home renovations, all set around casual philosophical table chats and lots of wine and soju.
