Winter's Night

Picturehouse Central welcomes back the London Korean Film Festival for a UK Premiere of Winter’s Night.

One cold winter’s night a middle-aged couple revisit the spot where they first spent the night together thirty years earlier: a well-known and picturesque Buddhist temple. After getting separated, the pair roam the snow-covered and moodily atmospheric temple grounds encountering, amongst others, a young couple who resemble their younger selves, leading them to reflect on their lives and relationship.

Director Jang Woo-jin picked up a director’s award at the prestigious Busan Film Festival for his previous effort Autumn, Autumn and he enjoyed similar success earlier in the year at Rotterdam International Film Festival with the melancholy and meditative Winter’s Night.
