Storyline

Winner of FIPRESCI award at 2018 Cannes Film Festival. Jongsu is a twentysomething deliveryman who encounters Haemi, who he knew in childhood but hasn’t thought about in years. Reminding him that he was once cruel about her looks — which Jongsu doesn’t remember — this beautiful woman seduces the deliveryman, starting an impromptu relationship. But soon, Haemi asks for a favour: she’s leaving for an African trip, so would he be willing to housesit her cat while she’s gone? Jongsu obliges, although he begins to doubt her feelings for him once she returns with a handsome, wealthy new friend named Ben.

About the director

Lee Chang-dong began a career in theater in his twenties and then moved on to work as a novelist. He made his debut as a film director with „Green Fish“, a "one of a kind" Korean film noir.  With his next two films – „Peppermint Candy“ and „Oasis“ – he received critical acclaim as well as international acclaim and accolades (Best Director at the Venice Film Festival for „Oasis“). In 2003, he was appointed as Minister of Culture and Tourism. When he was relieved from this official position, he directed his fourth film, „Secret Sunshine“. The superb performance by Jeon Do-yeon earned her the Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2007. His fifth film, „Poetry“ won the best screenplay award from the 63rd Cannes Film Festival and won the prestigious awards at various national and international film festivals. His latest film is „Burning“ which won FIPRESCI award at 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
