연애담 (Our Love Story) 2016
This indie film is a must watch! The film shows the journey of the relationship of two women. Yoon Ju, an art student and Ji Soo, a bartender. It’s a very realistic simple love story and i love it for it! It’s not overly dramatic, and just shows a lesbian relationship in modern day Seoul as real as it gets.
What makes me watch this film over and over again is the dynamic of the two leads, their curious glances, subtle smiles, and as their relationship progresses, you can naturally feel it too. How their love starts with a burning desire for each other and then gradually fades away as they become distant in a literal sense as Ji Soo had to move away to live with her father again. It’s like watching a real love story not a film. It made me curious to the point that it made me ask questions like, could it have been all real? That’s how great they were. Plus I have a crush on the actress playing Ji Soo hahha she’s so beautiful.
Seriously, this film deserves all the attention! It’s currently my fave lesbian film released this year, beating The Handmaiden. I just really love how real and simple this film is.
