If Tale of Cinema’s starting point was an unsuccessful filmmaker and an actress he regarded as his salvation; and if Woman on the Beach featured another director who manipulated things to finish his script and steal his friend´s girlfriend, this time in Like You Know It All the director is one that makes “art films” and gets invited to join a jury in an unimpressive film festival. But, as it usually happens in Hong Sang-soo’s films, those beginnings are merely a trigger to display the always difficult circumstances of understanding between men and women, in a plan where mix-ups and chance –a friend, his wife, a festival programmer– are proportional to the precise and joyful dosages of comedy (a lot) and sadness (a few). The big issues in the work of this master of mid-tone and lightness are all there, with characters who always try everything, even if they fail. When placed in his hands, cinema seems easy: meals, loves, drinks, friendships, confusions, enthusiasm, pasts, trips, futures… The arduous, delicate complexity of simple things. It’s hard to think of any another filmmaker whose work proves so clearly that great cinema is still possible.
