A film school graduate’s return to campus to request a recommendation letter releases a cascade of ricocheting encounters with three men from her past who are each in turn smitten by the beautiful and indecisive young Sunhi. Hong’s gently humorous tale of deferred desire offers another variation of the determined-yet-wavering heroine that has become an important focus of his recent films, with the eponymous Sunhi offered as a gentle foil to the stumbling men, unwittingly revealing the same predictably amorous intention underlying the thwarted trio’s clichéd career advice and professed desire to “help” her. A crisp Rohmerian entry into Hong’s oeuvre, Our Sunhi is a playful study of male ego that carefully uses caricature to richly comic effect.
