In CLAIRE'S CAMERA, a philandering film director is again a major plot point and Kim Minhee, again the star. But this time the mood is light and airy as a summer breeze, thanks in large part to a lively performance from Isabelle Huppert ("The Piano Teacher," "Elle"). Huppert plays Claire, a school teacher with a camera that might be magical on her first visit to Cannes. She happens upon a film sales assistant, Manhee (Kim), recently fired from her job and also meets So Wansoo (Jung Jinyoung), a film director whose one-night stand with Manhee was the reason for her firing. Beneath the humor and charm on the surface of CLAIRE'S CAMERA, Hong explores the power of images to transform us. “The only way to change things,” says Claire, “is to look at them again very slowly.”

"If Hong is often a filmmaker who can be accused of making the same movie over and over again, this latent muse brings a veritable freshness to his output by offering an emotional gravity that hadn’t significantly figured into his creative sphere."
Bradley Warren - THE PLAYLIST

"For all its airy lightness and apparent simplicity, it’s hard not to watch Claire’s Camera and sense beneath its placid surfaces the fretful voice of a filmmaker who longs to return to the elements of his art."
Bilge Ebiri - VILLAGE VOICE

"[Hong's] tightrope-long takes of scenes filmed in settings ranging from the picturesque to the banal (restaurants and apartments, café terraces, Mediterranean beaches) have an intricate dramatic construction, replete with glittering asides and wondrous coincidences, to rival that of a Hollywood classic"
Richard Brody - THE NEW YORKER
