TIFF’s Giovanni Fulvi calls Mimang “A condensed Korean indie counterpart to Richard Linklater’s Before series,” the movie following a man and a woman (Ha Seong-guk and Lee Myung-ha) as they walk the streets of Seoul, a city that seems to keep changing as time goes by. Kim Tae-yang and cinematographer Kim Jin-hyeong turns Seoul’s streets into magical, amorphous landscape, changing in the way that memories can change, even between people with deep connections to a place, a time, and each other.
Ayon kay Giovanni Fulvi ng TIFF ang Mimang ay “A condensed Korean indie counterpart to Richard Linklater’s Before series.” Sinusundan ng pelikula ang isang lalaki at isang babae (Ha Seong-guk at Lee Myung-ha) habang naglalakad sila sa mga lansangan ng Seoul, isang lungsod na tila patuloy na nagbabago habang lumilipas ang panahon. Sa pagtingin nila Kim Tae-yang at kanyang cinematographer na si Kim Jin-hyeong, ang mga kalye ng Seoul at nagiging mahiwaga; nagbabago ayon sa pagbabago ng mga alaala, kahit na sa pagitan ng mga taong may malalim na koneksyon sa isang lugar, isang oras, at sa isa’t isa.
