바람난 가족

105 mins

2003 | dir. Im Sang-Soo with Youn Yuh-Jung, Hwang Jung-Min, Moon So-Ri | DCP

Ho-Jeong (Moon So-ri) gave up a career in dance to be a good wife to lawyer husband Yeong-Jak (Hwang Jung-min) and good mother to their adopted son. She does part-time teaching at a nearby dance studio but otherwise her (sexual) life seems on hold. Yeong-jak’s mother Byeong-Han (Youn Yuh-Jung) is stuck tending to a dying alcoholic husband who hasn’t met her sexual needs for years. But she has found a lover and is determined to enjoy life. It will take a sudden tragedy hitting all the members of this ‘inconstant family’ (the literal title of the film) for Ho-Jeong to finally take control of her own life.

Sun 16 Nov 8.30pm

The screening will be followed by a discussion with director Im Sang-soo
