IFC Films | Release Date: October 23, 2009
Summary: Sungnam, a married man in his early forties who is an award-winning painter, shows up with his big traveling bag at the Charles De Gaulie Airport in Paris. He makes a sudden escape to a foreign land where he knows no one in order to flee from an arrest after smoking marijuana while he was drunk at a coincidental gathering. In the 14th district of Paris, he takes refuge at a run-down lodge owned by a Korean. Apart from wandering the streets and prowling in the park, he seems to have nothing else to do. He coincidentally meets his ex-girlfriend Minsun on the street, but their reunion really doesn't ignite any interest for him. His love and worries for his wife whom he left alone follows him around like his wallet. Sungnam is introduced to Hyunjoo, a foreign exchange student studying art in Paris, and her roommate Yujeong. Sungnam falls headlong for Yujeong's neat and sharp beauty and mind-boggling mysteriousness. Sungnam tries to adapt to this unfamiliar city, but like walking into a dark cave, he falls deep for Yujeong and Paris. (IFC Films)
