On a business trip to the Cannes Film Festival, Manhee is accused of being dishonest, and fired. A teacher named Claire goes around taking photos with a Polaroid camera. She gets to know Manhee and sympathizes with her. Claire is like a person who can see Manhee's possible future or past selves, through the mysterious power of the beach tunnel. Through taking photos, Claire has acquired the ability to look slowly at things, and to transform objects. Now, Claire goes with Manhee to the café where she was fired. We look forward to seeing Claire's power at work.Written by
What does ???? mean? It means I'm not sure what to make of this movie. Part of the problem was a lack of clarity of a plot theme which was, I guess, intentional so that we would discover why a Korean female employee would be fired after 5 yrs of service w/out a reason other than her Korean boss (also female which plays into why later on) has a "feeling" of distrust in her employee. So, all takes place in Cannes for a film showing, and along comes a French music teacher who likes to take Polaroid style instantly printable photos & give them to the photographed person and tell them that process changes their lives (????). As far as Cannes it was just a couple of boring tacky streets; a restaurant table w/a dog that did nothing; an enclosed sidewalk that did nothing. The reason for the firing becomes obvious when a male film producer shows up, and that unveiling was as exciting as an afternoon nap.
