On the Beach at Night Alone
On the Beach at Night Alone stars Kim Minhee (The Handmaiden, Right Now, Wrong Then)—in the role that won her the Silver Bear for best actress at the Berlin International Film Festival—as an actress named Younghee reeling in the aftermath of an affair with a married film director. Art imitates life in typical Hong fashion (the prolific auteur's real life affair with Kim has recently stirred up a media frenzy in Korea), but On the Beach at Night Alone sees him confronting his person al life with a newfound emotional directness. With an incredibly raw and vulnerable performance from Kim at its center, On the Beach at Night Alone is a quietly devastating reflection on loneliness and love lost.
