South Korea, 2016
Drama

Synopsis

They’re losers, but nice ones. Every day they sit at Yeri’s bar, smitten by the young Chinese-Korean woman. Yeri doesn’t have a preference. To her, they are equally sweet: Jongbin, a milk-drinking epileptic, Ikjune, a former petty criminal and the introverted Jungbum, who fled from North Korea.

Our take

Three of Korea’s top filmmakers—Yang Ik-june, Park Jung-bum, and Yoon Jong-bin—cleverly recreate characters from their own movies in this charming comedy. Fusing its gags with a pointed social message, director Zhang Lu elegantly balances a lighthearted tone with serious undercurrents.
