Our Sunhi
For his 15th feature film, director Hong Sang-soo (“In Another Country,” “The Day He Arrives”) delivers “Our Sunhi,” a playful comedy tracking film student Sunhi (Jung Yoo-mi, of several Hong films) through a trio of obstacles. Those obstacles come in the form of three usually drunk, always too confident, men. The “our” in the film’s english title belongs to those men, all three of whom become enamored with Sunhi over the course of a few days. It’s a layered phrasing, allowing for a friendly recognition of the uniqueness of the Sunhi that they all know but at the same time allows for selfish possessiveness. This word game is a great setup for the film itself as language, misunderstandings, and presumption are all themes played for some solid laughs.
