More info:


Dong-soo is a director who dreams of making a film, a pipe dream that looks impossible until he meets Yong-shil –the star of a film about a desperate couple– while coming out of a theater. In Tale of Cinema, cinema is no longer a mere plot pretext like it was in Hong Sang-soo’s previous film, Woman Is the Future of Man.Here, the idea of film as an appearance has become more intense, more self-reflective, and pushes to the limit the distance between everyday life and the one we see on the screen.
