Jong-seon, an elderly man in his 70s, who repeats the same routine every day, is all about taking a walk or playing Go on the Internet. One day, an old friend called him to meet up… Jong-seon leaves the house for tomorrow's meeting. Where is Jong-seon going?
Slow steps, an impassive face, and a fragile appearance from behind. The daily life of the old man Jong-seon seems more lonely than boring. He has no close friends in town, and his wife is in bed all day. Then one day, the word of a long-awaited reunion reaches Jong-seon, breathing a little vitality into his stale daily life. On the way to see his friends for the first time in a long while, his slow steps seem relaxed and laid-back. The Reunion is a film that tries to embrace the life of the elderly, where conversations like “Is he gone?” “He is.” mean something more than what’s on the surface. The smile that decorates the ending is particularly heartwarming. [SON Sinae]
