Edition 202297' - 2022 - Drama - Dialogue: Korean
Director: Hong Sang-soo Composer: Hong Sang-soo With: Kwon Hae-hyo, Lee Hye-young, Park Mi-so
Away from all trends, Hong Sang-soo diligently continues to build a completely unique cinematic universe. Walk Up is vintage Hong, hovering between humour and melancholy.
A middle-aged film director and the daughter he hasn’t seen in years visit a building owned by an interior designer. They have come because the daughter also hopes to study interior design. The designer takes them up floor by floor to show them the renovations she has done. The three of them go into the rooms on each floor to look around. After the film begins in this way, we start again at the bottom and ascend one floor at a time.
“A precious new addition to the impressive body of work of Hong Sang-soo, Walk Up is a cinematic jewel and a new chapter in his visual diary. The film returns to the same spaces and characters that the Korean master has accustomed us to. A melancholic gentleness here too fills the screen with humanity.” - TIFF
