DIRECTOR: HONG SANG-SOO

CAST: KIM MIN-HEE

A fascinating, fractured narrative of the sort that fans of the thematically- consistent-yet-constantly-changing Hong will immediately recognize—and newcomers will readily be taken in by—Grass revolves around a woman (Kim Min-hee) working on her laptop in a backstreet café, seated in the crossfire of three conversations: a young woman imminently departing for Europe who gets into a heated argument with her male companion; a self-absorbed actor-director (Jung Jin-young) trying to railroad a young writer into collaborating on his next film; and an out-of-work actor trying to play on a friend’s sympathies. Brisk and bracing, in ascetic black-and-white, it’s the distilled essence of Hong the puzzlemaker and philosopher's inexhaustible inventiveness.

A Cinema Guild release.
