Like the passage of time, Hong Sangsoo’s cinema keeps going. Hill of Freedom adds to an unequaled filmography in current cinema that seems to distill into films that are more and more perfect and sober as it grows. In a film world that seems to only pay attention to technical feats and formal exaggerations, Hong’s universe continues to develop in its use of minimum elements the director uses to always achieve a variation –he’s like an musician obsessed by the same melody that is always different when heard (watched) by us spectators. This time the plot features the story of Mori (Ryo Kase), a Japanese professor who travels to Korea in search of her beloved and elusive Kwon. There she will find Young-sun, the romantic hotel owner, and a series of unique characters united by, among other things, idiomatic confusions. The film’s storytelling responds to a series of letters that got accidentally mixed-up, and they talk to us about a past era; an era Hong’s cinema is trying to recuperate. MA
