Hong Sang-soo (Turning Gate) is fascinated by the sexual negotiation between men and women in his native Korea: this 2000 black-and-white drama, more innocently titled Oh! Soo-jung in its domestic release, follows a rich young man's methodical and fairly transparent campaign to seduce Soo-jung, a pretty young virgin who works for his friend. Near the middle of the film she's stranded in a suspended cable car and reviews the same chain of events from her own perspective, revealing that her suitor chased after someone else at a party and that she's explored a relationship with her boss, a pudgy and self-doubting video director. In memory the two versions tend to merge, giving a fuller sense of the story but heightening the notion that each gender has its own reality.
