Divided as usual into two distinct halves, "A Tale of Cinema" opens with the story of a young Sang-won (Lee Ki-woo), who, diverting from his usual route home, unexpectedly meets a girl he knew of high school, Yong-sil (Uhm Ji-won), working on an optician. Not unexpectedly for a Hong Sang-soo movie, the two go to a restaurant, drink and then go to a hotel for sex. Frustrated with the direction his life has taken, Sangwon decides to commit suicide and Yong-sil agrees to die with him, but things do not work as planned ... Overall the film is simple, easy to follow, if a little abstract and up to a bit uneventfully but, like all movies, its structure forces the viewer to examine recurring incidents and the relationship between the parallel scenes, creating layers that open the film up to different interpretations in a way that will reward repeated views.
