A story of four couples on a table at a cafe for one day. Their stories show different pieces of present lives of women.

  • Review

    Four actresses unfold four different episodes. Kim Jongkwan captures subtle moments of life on the table through real and simple language and actions. Each character played differently by Jung Eunchae, Han Yeri, Lim Soojung, and Jung Yumi resonates us emotionally. Lim Soojung plays a character who breaks up. Jung Eunchae plays an untactful woman. Jung Yumi’s character meets her boyfriend after a long time and tries to pull herself together. Han Yeri’s character talks to an elder woman. There is no special directing in these episodes on the table. They live their time and space like flowing water. The simple and natural aspects resemble life, reminding us that we watch movies not to forget the reality but to document our days like journals. Kim Jongkwan’s unique sense of subtlety shines like it did in his previous work, Worst Woman. [LEE Sang-yong]
