Isabelle Huppert has reached that magical point where she gives a thrill of delight simply by showing up, her decades of great performances seeming to hover around her like a halo.

...Huppert's character is a social flaneur who, whether she knows it or not, searches for guidance in others, the world around her and ultimately in herself in order to find a response, an intentional act taken in conscious responsibility.

If you take the film as the bauble it is, you'll be entertained by its lighthearted wit, social observations and resolute sidestepping of profundity.

A movie may be a representation of the world, but it is also something that happens in the world, which means that sustaining a cinematic illusion and breaking it are equally beside the point.

An effective comedy where the laughs don't come from farts or slapstick humor, but from everyday situations. [Full review in Spanish]

A beguiling set of variations on a theme, a gossamer-light étude composed for delight rather than dissection.

In Another Country sets its characters adrift inside its own narrative sphere, letting them live several lives in the course of an hour and a half, and letting us share in their freedom.

Hong embraces the power of fiction both to reflect reality and to reflect upon itself, and, in doing so, once again shows why he's one of the most important directors working today.
