Review

In July, a film like a short story that presents two stories set in Paris. It is a work to see the resurgence of Guillaume Brac, who represents the new generation of French cinema with Antonin Peretjatko, with Yann Gonzalez and Justine Triet. Both stories dealing with temptation is an allegory of relationship, and the actors´ natural perfermance is outstanding. In the first story, Milena and her colleague Lucie come into conflict because of the rescue crew that they meet in the outdoor pool on holiday. The second story depicts the last day of Hanne´s journey in Paris from Norway. On this day, she meets three men with different intentions respectively and get confused. While the first story is warmly ended without moments of big crisis, the second story, full of erotic dance and romantic atmosphere, includes unexpected tragedy. [JANG Byungwon]

DIRECTOR
Guillaume BRAC
Guillaume Brac is a major director of French cinema’s new generation. His debut feature film A World Without Women (2011) deals with a man shaken up by two women. This emotional drama is continued in his film Tonnerre (2013) where he portrays a rapidly changing relationship as a musician and a woman meet. July Tales (2017), screened at the 19th Jeonju IFF, is an omnibus film about two friends’ visit to the beach and a Norwegian traveler’s last day in Paris. His recent documentary Treasure Island depicts the suburban Paris beach as a microcosm of the world. Brac crosses the boundaries of narrative and documentary film without setting a clear difference between the two and enjoys mixing elements from both sides. He is often mentioned as the descendant of Eric Rohmer due to his balanced projection of melancholy, irony, and ego in his portrayal of trivial daily lives.
