Inspired by a true story, the film is about a man who seeks his wife who suddenly disappeared during their honeymoon in Paris. He doesn’t know if this is from her own decision or if she’s been kidnapped and forced to become a prostitute
Through mysterious encounters, this obstinate search of his alter ego makes him loose his soul and become like a ghost, wandering in the hexagon, and might turn into a search of himself.
Deep dive into a marginal France, a disenchanted Paris, this road movie tinged by surreal, absurd, rage and grace, is also an initiatory existential journey.
Available on DVD – Region 3
Languages: French & Korean with english subtitles
THEATRICAL RELEASE in South Korea on Jan. 28th 2016 reached TOP week-end BOX OFFICE!
A steadily absorbing portrait of a man trawling the ugly lower depths of one of the world’s most beautiful cities. ... (Mi-kwan Lock), a tall, striking prostitute who clearly appreciates connecting with someone who isn’t just another john. There’s poignancy in that development, and in the physically and emotionally violent moment when Sang-ho betrays the chaste parameters of their relationship.
At times, Mi-Kwan Lock’s Chang is even more frightfully vulnerable and exposed, but the frustrated humanity she conveys is just devastating. Based on her turn, the French-born, Madagascar-raised Lock should be a RISING INTERNATIONAL STAR to contend with. The work of Cho and Lock is ABSOLUTELY RIVETING.
The young French-Chinese actress from Madagascar Mi Kwan Lock - the KEY OF THE FILM - should become a PROMISING ACTRESS.
