In a city that awaits development projects, Donggu, an independent filmmaker is bothered with his uncertain future and starts living with a landlord kid. They slowly understand and depend on each other.

  • Review

    Donggu is an independent filmmaker who worries about the uncertain future such as his unstable relationship with his girlfriend. He rents a room in a house where a boy named Seokyoung lives alone. Donggu is surprised that Seokyoung is too mature for his age. Seokyoung is enduring a hard time while making a living by collecting scrap papers.
    Nomad, Lee Wansoo’s debut film, draws attention with a laid-back tempo. Unlike the rapidly moving outside world, the world of the protagonist seems to have its own vibe. Though the place seems isolated, away from reality, and dream-like, this place is also filled with cruel scars. The spiritless manners of the characters are a device to conceal the fierce deficiency inside them. The unique rhythm and humor of the characters being flustered by unexpected behaviors of the other are the charm of this film. [KIM Youngjin]
