QUEER EAST: BETWEEN THE SEASONS

Between The Seasons (Dir Kim Jun-Sik)

UK PREMIERE // 98 mins // Subtitled // Certificate: 15

The reserved Hae-Soo (Rie Young-Zin) starts a new life, moving from Seoul to a new city and taking ownership of a small café. A high-school student, Ye-Jin (Yoon Hye-Ri), becomes a regular customer and eventually starts working there on a part-time basis. Fate pushes the two women together, and a friendship develops that brings a spark of life back to Hae-Soo. However, it soon becomes clear that they both have their secrets, which they guard carefully. Displaying a sensitive touch, Kim Jun-Sik’s debut feature avoids melodrama and gently develops the emotional lives of the two women, slowly blossoming into a thoughtful, touching reflection on gender, sexuality and self-acceptance.

“Kim Jun-sik’s careful pacing results in an accomplished work that also serves as a winning plea for tolerance and the right to be yourself.” Screen Daily.
