On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate

On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate

One of the earliest works of Hong Sangsoo, ‘On the Occasion of Remembering the Turning Gate’ has a rich and intriguing narrative loaded with up in the air, complex emotions that leaves a young professional actor in tithers. Gyung-soo dates two women in succession while on his visit to a friend. Both the romantic tales appears in harmony with some of the events happening exactly, but what separates them is the outcome of the flings. Without giving too much about the plot to ruin your experience, Hong Sangsoo whip up nuanced emotional trickery using the standard tropes he has effectively employed in most of his films.
