South Korean master Hong Sang-soo exports his distinctive strain of wispy comedy shot through with a vein of existential yearning with this delightful tale about Claire, a zany amateur photographer discovering life at the Cannes Film Festival.

Isabelle Huppert is at her eccentric best in the role of Claire, the candid artist who stumbles onto a festival micro-drama of infidelity and disappointment involving a Korean director, his partner and producer, and a beautiful young sales agent.

Shot in under a week at Cannes in 2016, this bittersweet comedy premiered to rapturous reviews at the festival the following year.

Ms. Huppert’s presence — steady, warm, thoughtful but with a casual air — keeps the entire enterprise classically comedic.” — The New York Times
