It’s a sweltering summer, but Jung-won (Han Suk-kyu), a terminally ill, thirty-something photographer, is already in the winter of his life when he begins a tentative romance with a young traffic cop (Shim Eun-ha, who swept the Korean awards for her performance) who doesn’t know about his condition. Is their relationship doomed before it even begins? A poignant reflection on the ephemeral nature of life and love—and of photography’s ability to preserve the fleeting present—this modern Korean classic is an unabashed, heart-racingly effective tear-jerker that derives its power from a supreme delicacy and restraint.
