When her daughter, Ga-yeon, gets a new boyfriend, Yeong-hee has a dream about the couple sleeping together.
A violin instructor Yeong-hee dreams about her daughter sleeping with her boyfriend when no one is home. This dream is concretized as substantial anxiety that shakes her life. The way Yeong-hee looks at her extremely talented daughter is portrayed as distorted, jumbled up with affection, anxiety, uneasiness, and a sense of inferiority. Her view disperses the representation of the film and distorts the space of a bourgeois family. Characters repeatedly return to the room while the wavering curtains and the dust in the air amplify confusion. It’s an impressive short film that creates the anxious “mood” that engulfs the characters and the space without relying on narrative logic. [KIM Byeonggyu]
