| Mediocre film from a talented director
Geu-hu (2017) is a Korean movie shown in the U.S. with the title The Day After. The film was written and directed by Sang-soo Hong.

It stars Min-hee Kim as Song Areum, a young woman who begins her first day at work in a small publishing house. Unknown to her, the woman who held the job before she did was the married publisher's lover.

What follows is a French-style farce, with trysts, mistaken identity, and woman-on-woman violence. The publisher, who is at the center of all this, doesn't strike me as someone women would fight over. Because of this, the film didn't work for me.

We saw this film in its Rochester premiere at the wonderful Dryden Theatre at the George Eastman museum. It has a decent IMDb rating of 7.0. I don't believe it's as good as that. In any event, it will work as well on the small screen as it does on the large screen.
