Hong Sang-soo’s first film is the work of a first-timer with astounding self-confidence. In The Day a Pig Fell into a Well, Hong tells connected stories without needing to establish their link until the end. Or, rather, the endings. At that point of the film, like he would later do in Virgin Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, he plays at modifying what has already been told; here, the free-fall of a writer, an unfaithful wife’s double frustration, the unrequited love of an eclectic female worker, and a husband’s despair. A jolly good dose of little absurdities runs through this film filled with the firm decisions of an equally subtle and ever-present storyteller.
