Told from the point of view of a young actor who undertakes two love affairs in a row, Turning Gate is a fresh opportunity for the director to explore, with method and intelligence, the way human relations operate. The endeavour, seemingly outside the scope of narrative, proves not to be too big for Hong Sang-soo. His tool is a complete trust in truth, and in cinema as a vehicle to display it without allowing illusions blind him or letting himself be tempted into the ways of sentimentalism and allegory, without looking for cheap consolation or stoop to cynical comments.
