Coming Soon

A refreshingly sunny performance from Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher, Elle) is at the center of this comic charmer from writer/director Hong Sangsoo, one of the most established auteurs in contemporary Korean cinema. Huppert plays Claire, a school teacher with a Polaroid camera (that might be magical) enjoying her first visit to Cannes. She happens upon a young woman film sales assistant, Manhee (Kim Minhee, The Handmaiden), who has just been abruptly fired mid-festival for no apparent reason. Claire likes to take snapshots of everyone she meets, and this leads to serendipitous connections. Claire and Manhee wander together around the seaside resort town, unlikely detectives of sorts, working to better understand the circumstances of Manhee’s firing—and developing new outlooks on life in the process. Intricately plotted with wit and charm to spare, Claire’s Camera explores the power of images to transform us. “The only way to change things,” says Claire, “is to look at them again very slowly.” (Partially subtitled)
