Hong Sang-Soo used to be compared with Eric Rohmer, and these days with Woody Allen - and his productiveness matches. But he is above all Hong Sang-Soo. In Our Sunhi, no less than three troubled men turn their souls inside out. The centrifugal core of this collective self-analysis, soaked in a lot of beer and larded with very dry humour and culinary dialogues, is title heroine Sunhi.
A year after graduating, Sunhi returns to her old film academy to ask her professor for a letter of recommendation. He is willing to go along, but only if he can be absolutely honest - which becomes increasingly difficult as he falls for the charms of his former student. Meanwhile, Sunhi meets two more friends from her past: an ex who has made a film about their failed relationship but still loves her and his good friend, who is also in love with Sunhi. This comedy of morals comes to an inevitable climax when the four agree to meet in Seoul's central park.
