Jang Woo-jin’s films unfold with beguiling, delicate grace and a tingling sensation of time. He follows up ‘Autumn, Autumn’ - an Olhar de Cinema 2017 selection -, with another widescreen study of a couple at a crossroads in the Korean city of Chuncheon, a frequent tourist destination where the wife and husband at Winter Night’s center first met. Thirty years later, they return to visit the Buddhist temple of Cheongpyeongsa, after which they are accidentally separated. As they subsequently wander the night, they meet a number of odd characters that help them find each other and more clearly see themselves.
