Review

Hwijong loses his job as a parking attendant because a brand-new building will be built on the parking lot he used to work for. Yeun unexpectedly loses her lover. She wants to go back to her old job only to find the office building completely empty. For Yeun, the street that she has been walking for years does not feel the same as before. On the contrary, Hwijong is trapped in a repeated sequence of experience even in his dreams. The daily lives of the two dance with each other to Chopin’s Waltz—they are sometimes tangled, sometimes crossed on the road. This film is intended to go through the high rise building in downtown Seoul like capillary vessels. Little snippets of live sometimes go through the little roads or change directions to create life. The film was made likewise. Excerpts from young people’s journals were used for the movie. Based on the journal entries, actors improvised and acted out the scenes, which the filmmakers filmed and edited. The movie is a reconstructed work based on excerpts from the director’s 2014 exhibition. [NA Wonjeong]
