Return to Seoul
A twenty-five-year-old French woman returns to Korea, the country she was born in before being adopted by a French couple, for the very first time. She decides to track down her biological parents, but her journey takes a surprising turn.
‘“Return to Seoul” is a funny, melancholy film that will surprise you start to finish… With its shifting palette and attentive eye, Chou's style respects [his heroine’s] unruliness. Rather than weave itself into a tidy narrative complete with tailor-made epiphanies, “Return to Seoul” lurches through eight years in a series of sharp, unpredictable episodes… I was held rapt by Park's bristling performance as Freddie, one made all the more astonishing because she's never acted before. Wow, does she have presence!’—John Powers, NPR
