When the moon is on the wane
In a tilting and subsiding town, everybody has left. Jae-ah is still waiting for her brother to come back. She lives in the shadow of fear, as her house begins to tilt.
The world of When the moon is on the wane is desperate. Forced eviction for demolition is about to happen and the hopeless Jae-ah’s situation is no different than the end of the world. Despair brings desperate measures. The reason why the film travels between the past, fantasy, and reality is because of Jae-ah’s despair. In the center of all this, there is her brother. Thinking about her brother, who left home leaving her behind as he was greatly hurt by her when she was young, becomes resentment, yearning, and sadness. Watching Lee Minji’s performance is also another great highlight. (MOON Seok)
