Lee Myung-Se

Hallucinations and nightmares torment up-and-coming young author Min-woo (Gang Dong-Won). He cannot concentrate on his new work, the much-anticipated follow-up to his first successful novel, nor can he lead a normal life. Old photos and images he does not recognize – though they are somehow familiar – materialize from the darkness as if developed in a darkroom. Haunted by these spectres of memories he can’t remember, he drags himself through days of confusion and alienation. Mimi (Lee Yeon-Hee), a beautiful young woman, follows him around like one completely lost in love. As Mimi intones the notes of “Mist” (popular song from 1960’s) for him, long-ago recollections sparkle in the darkness of his mind as if illuminated by flashbulbs. Flickering memories of his first love claim his concentration, calling for him to remember.

Free admission. Prior registration essential.

Directed by  Shinobu Yaguchi 矢口史靖 /1997/83 mins

Much of the comedy of this film is generated by the ungainly physical humour of Sakiko’s single minded determination, using voice-over, flashback, and other forms of reconstructed narrative such as the ‘flick book’.

Money-lover, Sakiko is abducted by bank robbers to the Aokigahara forest, famous for its confusing layout and magnetic soil that confuses compasses. There they crash and burn: only Sakiko survives, unable to forget the money that she knows survived but which everyone else thinks burned up in the crash.
