Re-encounter by Ming JongKeun

One of a few films shown at Off Plus Camera in the Busan section.

It’s a hunt for the past, an attempt at patching very old scars which will never cure, never get back to their original healthy surface.

A story of naive hope that some things can be fixed, when in fact, they never will. A sad look at a dramatic couple who conceived a child a few years back, whom they gave away for adoption and how life has changed over the years.

There’s a strong parallel between the lives of people and the lives of dogs. There seems to be a concept of transplaced sense of motherhood that the main protagonist exercises on sick and abandoned dogs she takes care of.

A very melancholic and sad experience.
