RETURN TO SEOUL

RETOUR A SEOUL

Freddie (Park Ji-Min), a young French woman, finds herself spontaneously tracking down the South Korean birth parents she has never met while on vacation in Seoul. Unfolding across several specific time periods in Freddie’s life, usually tethered to her birth country (geographically and metaphorically), the film’s time-jumping narrative weaves in twists and turns, chronicling the turbulent rhythms of its impetuous protagonist, portrayed by Park in a galvanizing, fiery breakthrough performance.

Cambodian French director Davy Chou spins a unique narrative that at times feels like portraiture and at once discards the usual cliches of the Korean adoptee experience, closing in on the feelings of “unbelonging” that have created impenetrable barriers and emotional distance from nearly everyone in Freddie’s life. RETURN TO SEOUL is an enormously moving film made with youthful verve and boundless energy.
