After years of living abroad, a middle-aged former actress (Lee Hye-young) has returned to South Korea to reconnect with her past and perhaps make amends.

“A masterclass in economical filmmaking … and a reminder that Hong Sangsoo is not only among the best filmmakers working today, but also simply one of cinema’s greatest storytellers.” – K.F. Watanabe, Screen Slate

Over the course of one day in Seoul, via various encounters—including with her younger sister; a shopkeeper who lives in her converted childhood home; and, finally, a well-known film director with whom she would like to make a comeback—we discover her resentments and regrets, her financial difficulties, and the big secret that’s keeping her aloof from the world. Both beguiling and oddly cleansing in its mix of the spiritual and the cynical, In Front of Your Face finds the endlessly prolific Hong Sangsoo (Night and Day, Woman on the  Beach) in a particularly contemplative mood; it’s a film that somehow finds that life is at once full of grace and a bad joke.(Dir. by Hong Sangsoo, 2021, South Korea, in Korean with English subtitles, 85 mins., Not Rated)
