Anne is a famous French film director travelling with her Korean filmmaker friend to Mohang-ni, a small seaside resort. Another Anne, married to an automotive industry executive, is visiting Mohang-ni with her lover. Yet a third Anne is an abandoned wife finding solace in the company of a friend and folklore professor who lives in Mohang-ni. One actress, two countries, three roles, three stories (the same story?), set loose in a hall of mirrors. Between France and Korea, comedy and melancholy, the imaginary and the fictional, South Korean director Hong Sang-soo (Conte de cinéma, Hahaha, The Day He Arrives) perfects his poetic and spellbinding approach, where film mirrors reality and reality, film. His thirteenth work and a competitor at this year’s Cannes festival, In Another Country dives gleefully and ingeniously into the games of love and chance. Isabelle Huppert slips, radiant and imperial, from one story to the next, from one woman to another, presiding over this playful, inspired and bittersweet comedy and infusing it with an unexpected lightness and sense of nuance.
