From the acclaimed director <301, 302>
With a film as erotically charged and aesthetically adventurous as it is emotionally truthful, veteran director Park Chul-soo brings us the provocative story of amour fou between a 32-year-old divorcee and a 19-year- old college student (who under Korean law is considered a minor until he turns 20).
After being arrested and sentenced to community service for corrupting a minor, beautiful, enigmatic Moon-hee attempts to ditch handsome young Hyun. But Hyun refuses to disappear, and the two, magnetically drawn together, go on the lam, escaping to a hotel room where they rapturously discover each other through sex that is as raw and intimate as any seen on screen. As the film progresses, so, too, does their trust in each other and their confidence in their unorthodox choices. Park brings an extraordinary intelligence, sensitivity, and spirited lightness to the story of an egalitarian relationship that continuously defies expectation as the lovers test the frontiers of sensation, communicate in ineffable ways, and improvise an unconventional family.
Park shifts stylistic gears with a humorously theatrical, almost surrealist culminating scene in which an unlikely group--including Moon-hee's feminist supervisor, her criminal case investigator, and Hyun's entirely accepting mother--weigh in with Greek chorus-like opinions on this rare partnership. Full of stylistic surprises and magical moments, Green Chair is a celebration of living in the moment and a profound meditation on maturity and innocence.- Caroline Libresco
