In the fourth title of the Decadent Editions series, Dennis Lim explores the oeuvre of South Korean auteur Hong Sangsoo via his 2005 film. Forty minutes in, we realise we've been watching a film within the film. The 'real' characters leave the cinema and find themselves re-enacting what they just saw, as a chance encounter invites a suicide pact. Is it life imitating art, or the other way around?
