Overview

Colleagues congratulate Cheolhoon´s birthday during a video conference. Cheolhoon, staying at home, tries to contact his friends, but all of them are reluctant to meet him. It´s only his supervisor who rings his phone, letting him down. Then, he finds a device on the desk.

Review

This film represents the futility of telecommuting and video conferencing systems that became common during the time of COVID-19. The protagonist receives birthday messages through chat and text, but cannot feel any sincerity and only adds to his loneliness. Congratulations! tells the story of a man who wants to have a realistic birthday party even in a virtual reality world. The film expresses the mind of the protagonist with very little dialogue. (MOON Seok)
