A film director befriends a young painter while in town promoting his new film. Then, quite unexpectedly, we begin again, but now things appear somewhat different (RottenTomatoes).

"Together, the two parts make a radical fiction about the crucial role of imagination in lived experience." - Richard Brody (New Yorker)

South Korea | 121 min | NR | DCP | Dir. Sang-soo Hong

The latest film from Festival favourite Hong Sang-soo pursues the always-alluring possibility of love down two very different paths. In Right Now, Wrong Then, Hong presents two variations on a potentially fateful encounter between a filmmaker and an artist, tracing each to its own very distinct outcome. Ham Cheon-soo (Jung Jae-young, star of Hong's Our Sunhi) is a director visiting Suwon for a screening and speaking engagement. Having arrived a day early, Cheon-soo heads out sightseeing and, while visiting an old palace, meets Yoon Hee-jeong (Kim Min-hee), a pretty local painter. Conversation flows easily between the two, and before they know it a coffee date leads to a visit to Hee-jeong's studio, which leads to sushi and too much soju, which leads to an uncomfortable visit to a party, which leads to... well, let's just say that what transpires at this drunken get-together makes all the difference with regards to whether Cheon-soo and Hee-jeong's brief encounter becomes something bitter or sweet.
