Oki's Movie (옥희의 영화)

옥희의 영화 (Ok-hee-eui Yeong-hwa)

Directed by Hong Sang-soo (홍상수)

Screenplay by


80min | Release date in South Korea :

OKI’S MOVIE is comprised of 4 short films: A DAY FOR INCANTATION, KING OF KISSES, AFTER THE SNOWSTORM and OKI’S MOVIE. Three main characters appear in all of the four shorts, having different but overlapping roles in each of them. The last one, OKI’S MOVIE is a story of a film student Oki who made a film about two men she has dated; one young and the other much older. In her film, she makes a cinematographic construction of her experiences of coming to Acha Mountain with each man with a year apart. She juxtaposes her experiences with each man by paring them according to places on the mountain: the parking lot, the entrance, a small pavilion, the public toilet, the wooden bridge, and halfway up the mountain. We see the differences and similarities of the two experiences in details. And by this composition, we may feel that we are seeing an overall picture of Oki’s relationships with the two men.

"Oki's Movie" is made up of four smaller parts. Each part shows three main characters and their differences. This is the summary of the last part, called "Oki's Movie":

"Oki's Movie"
A film student Oki makes a movie about a young man and a older man she both dated. She went to the mountain with both of these men, a year apart. In her movie, she shows her experiences with both of these men in different spaces. The parking lot, entrance of the mountain, in front of the gazebo, bathroom, in front of a wooden bridge, halfway up the mountain. We are able to see the differences between the two experiences, because they are portrayed side by side. We get an overall picture of Oki and the relationship with the two men.

  • [HanCinema's Film Review] "Helpless"

    Film: "Helpless" Director: Byeon Yeong-joo ("Flying Boys" and "Ardor") Stars: Lee Sun-kyun, Kim Min-hee, Jo Sung-ha, and Song Ha-yoon Review Score: 8.5/10 Also try: "Children...", "Dream" or "Moss" Byeon Yeong-joo's third film, "Helpless", is based off the Japanese novel "Kasha" ("All She was Worth") by Miyuki Miyabe, who's known as the 'queen of crime fiction' in Japan.

    Film: "The Day He Arrives" Director: Hong Sang-soo ("Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors", "On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate", and "Woman on the Beach") Stars: Yu Jun-sang, Kim Sang-joong, Song Seon-mi and Kim Bo-kyung Review Score: 8.5/10 Also try: "The Day a Pig Fell Into the Well" and "Oki's Movie" Hong Sang-soo's body of work exists within his own cinematic ontology, with his narratives being both deeply personal, yet relatable to the very intentional point of being uncomfortable. In "The Day He Arrives", Hong Sang-soo adds another chapter to a filmography that subtly plays with cinematic realism while seducing his audiences with a uncanny sense of existence and dreamy fantasy. In keeping with the themes and motifs contain in his previous films, Hong Sang-soo once again probes deep into the human condition, placing his own philosophical commentary on existential issues that orbit the individual and their relationships with others,...More

    Dark Horse Korean Hit at the Gate in the U.S. LOS ANGELES, CA (April 9, 2012) – CJ Entertainment America is launching the moody Korean thriller "Helpless" on April 20, 2012 as an exclusive engagement for Los Angeles at the CGV Cinemas, with national dates expected for early May. The film was a critical darling and unexpected box office champion for two consecutive weeks when it was released in Korea earlier this year. - Russell Edwards, Variety "...The film never ceases to compel. As the layers of deceit are peeled back, Byeon seems in complete command of her material. A key demonstration of her narrative dexterity is the way she flaunts an audacious 'Chinatown'-like clue to the missing woman's whereabouts without pre-empting the climax",...More

    Hong Sang-soo seems to me to be an acquired taste.

  • [INTERVIEW] Actor Lee Sun-kyun - Part 1

    2010/12/09, Source
    Actor Lee Sun-kyun [Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia] "I think all guys are the same when they become dads, in the sense that we think that we need to take care of our family as the breadwinner of the house rather than wanting to become a certain kind of actor", actor Lee Sun-kyun said in his mellow ringing voice. This man, who viewers thought would wait eternally for the main female character in his movies and dramas with his mild voice and gaze, has become a real man who now has a wife and son. And it may be coincidence but with his more recent roles -- from film "Paju" and "Oki's Movie" to MBC TV series "Pasta" -- Lee at times became violent and sometimes even a loser instead of the angelic romantic guy he was most often regarded as. The reason that romantic comedy pic "Petty Romance" comes as a pleasant surprise to fans is that he has gone back to working on a romantic story but has managed to play a character with a sharp temper. Some viewers may think he has merely made a change, while others may think he has matured. Maybe the interview below will help you make a clearer judgement. 10: Your moustache is what stands out to me the most about you from the very start. Lee Sun-kyun: It was my look in film "Petty Romance". The script for it had originally said my character is not well off financially but still looks amazing on the outside, looking like a model and dressing nicely as well. But this didn't seem to go with the circumstances he is in,...More
  • [INTERVIEW] Actor Lee Sun-kyun - Part 2

    2010/12/09, Source
    Actor Lee Sun-kyun [Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia]  10: We talked about your wife just now but it doesn't seem weird when we see you dating women in dramas. At the same time, such acting could start to come off as weird if the fact that you're married and have a child gets too well-known. Lee Sun-kyun: That's what people say but it's the truth even if I don't talk about it. And everybody knows anyway. There's no need to go around asking people not to talk about it nor any need for me to bring it up on purpose. I'll just answer questions on them when people ask about them. But I do think it's unfair when an article on me focuses solely on them -- when I've been talking for an hour about my movie but the article will turn out to be about my family which I talked about on the side. I sometimes wonder what's the use talking about my movies for four days and six hours each day, until I'm practically burnt out, (laugh) when that's what ends up getting written about me. I understand that reporters need to draw attention but I wish they would write about my family on the side. 10: It could be because you're a star. They're curious to know what you the real Lee Sun-kyun is like, outside the person we see on screen. Lee Sun-kyun: And of course I should be thankful about that. It's great but… Even right now, we're talking about so many things… (laugh),...More

I don't know if it's because I watched director Lee Chang-dong's new film "Poetry" yesterday but I rethought about poems. I mean, writing poems is actually an act which we are quite unaccustomed to other than having written them in school. Hong Sang-soo: Is that so? Don't people write poems? Beck: Do you write poems? Hong: Yes, occasionally. It's not really a big deal. For example, first line, an ashtray is transparent. Second line, the table is yellow. Or the ashtray is standing up but the table is laying down. Doesn't even that make it seem strange? Beck: Hm... It does seem to create some kind of meaning in between the lines,...More
