Daytime Drinking

A college student (Song Sam-dong) who's been jilted by his girlfriend reluctantly consents to join three jeeringly unsympathetic drinking buddies at a rural tourist stop the following day. Hungover, his pals stand him up, but the laconic hero forges ahead on a disastrous road trip as eccentric and sometimes ill-willed strangers ply him with soju, whiskey, wine, and vile herbal brews, which he must accept in accordance with Korean drinking etiquette. Tyro writer-director Noh Young-seok, a Jim Jarmusch acolyte but with more heart, distills weirdly poetic black comedy from a simple premise and nonexistent budget. In Korean with subtitles. 116 min.
