Enjoyed the overall flow of this one. I appreciated Hong's patience with the camera in general, allowing scenes to play out with limited cutting. The zooms seemed more distracting than helpful, though they often do effectively isolate certain characters from others. The arc of the female protagonist reminded me a little of Kate Dollenmeyer's character in Funny Ha Ha, not just in the story, but in Hong's portrayal of her as well. Very enjoyable.
The most accessible Hong Sang-soo flick I've seen so far (being the third one), and also the longest. It starts off well, but loses it's same comedic tone and pacing between the middle and the end. That said, there are some good parts here and if you're looking to explore Hong Sang-soo's work this is essential.
