It’s the summer holidays in the city and young Hana is trying to get her warring parents to reunite. But she’s distracted from her quest one day by a couple of younger girls, nine-year-old Yoomi and seven-year-old Yoojin. As she swiftly becomes an older-sister figure to the pair, the trio’s recess becomes one of imagination and adventure – from playing tricks on the landlady to going on a seaside reconnaissance – that leads to the bittersweet glimmerings of maturity. In her follow-up to the much-loved The World of Us, Ga-eun Yoon continues to draw astonishing performances from young actors and performs the cinematic magic trick of immersing us in children’s perspective while allowing us to bring adult understanding to their experience. This is rich, joyous, heart-swelling cinema.
Official Selection: 2019 BFI London Film Festival
