On the afternoon of the 25th (local time), the official screening of ‘Our Day’ was held at the Cancroisette Theater in southern France. ‘Our Day’ was selected as the closing film for Director’s Week.
In ‘Our Day’, Hong Sang-soo’s lover, Kim Min-hee, starred in the lead role. The two developed into lovers through the movie ‘Right Now, Wrong Then’ released in 2015 and admitted their devotion in 2017. Cannes Director’s Week executive director Julien Reggie said, “The film naturally deals with all the joys of life. It was really beautiful to see Kim Min-hee talking about how she became a true actress.”
