Poetic by its precision, attentive to duration, to the uncertainty of the moment, to outlined movements and to what they betray or control: Hong Sang-soo’s cinema seems to consist only of details, of contingent moments that suddenly get out of hand or explode. “I never aim for generalization; there’s never a global view on society at the origin of a film or even a shot. It seems to me that reality can only appear between the cracks of discrete, hypothetic, uncertain elements. I am wary of clichés and big expressions. I do not believe, for example, that something we could call ‘the’ contemporary Korea exists. I never try to share a truth, but only approximations.”

Poétique à force de précision, attentif aux durées, aux incertitudes de l'instant, aux mouvements esquissés et à ce qu’ils trahissent ou réfrènent, le cinéma de Hong Sang-soo semble n’être constitué que de détails, de moments contingents, qui soudain dérapent ou explosent. « Je ne vise jamais la généralisation ; le point de vue global sur la société n’est jamais à l’origine d’un film, ou même d’un plan. Il me semble que la réalité ne peut apparaître qu’entre les interstices d’éléments discrets, hypothétiques, incertains. Je me méfie des clichés et des grandes phrases, je ne crois pas, par exemple, qu’il existe ce qu’on pourrait appeler “la” Corée contemporaine. Je ne cherche jamais à faire partager une vérité, mais des approximations. »
