Hong Sang-soo & Kim Min-hee Week

Claire's Camera

A refreshingly sunny performance from Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher) is at the center of this comic charmer. Huppert plays Claire, a school teacher with a camera (that might be magical) on her first visit to Cannes. She happens upon a film sales assistant, Manhee (Kim Minhee), recently laid off after a one-night stand with a film director (Jung Jinyoung). Together, this unlikely pair become detectives of sorts, as they wander around the seaside resort town, working to better understand the circumstances of Manhee's firing — and developing new outlooks on life in the process.

"A breezy celebration of the mysterious power of filmmaking. Feeling more spontaneous and improvised than ever, this tale of chance encounters at a big film festival is easy on the eye and strewn with humorous gems." (Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter)
