On the day scheduled for the wedding they take the train to Pak's hometown. Will her experiences on the street keep Lee in line, or will she shun a future with such a dull husband?Written by
Night Journey is the story of a South Korean woman trapped in an unsatisfactory affair. Given a vacation from work, she spends her time visiting her home town and wandering the streets of Seoul. It is an interesting look at the status of women in 70's South Korea. She is a woman with sexual desires in a society of men who are incapable of satisfying her needs or even imagining what they are. A worthy subject that the movie isn't quite capable of honoring. It is tonally all over the place. It starts out almost like a suspense film and then veers from drama to comedy to soft core porn. Odd stylistic flourishes are thrown in randomly at times without much obvious purpose. The whole thing is frustrating because there are some good moments, but not enough of them to make a particularly good movie.
