Isabelle Huppert (ELLE, THE PIANO TEACHER) stars in Hong Sang-soo’s delectably playful CLAIRE’S CAMERA, a comic film about a school teacher visiting Cannes for the first time whose potentially magical polaroid camera connects her with Manhee, a recently fired film sales assistant. Together they attempt to get to understand the circumstances behind Manhee’s firing.  

 

A refreshingly sunny performance from Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher, Elle) is at the center of this comic charmer from South Korean Master Hong Sangsoo. Huppert plays Claire, a school teacher with a camera (that might be magical) on her first visit to Cannes. She happens upon a film sales assistant, Manhee (Kim Minhee), recently laid off after a one-night stand with a film director (Jung Jinyoung). Together, this unlikely pair become detectives of sorts, as they wander around the seaside resort town, working to better understand the circumstances of Manhee’s firing—and developing new outlooks on life in the process.

 

Critic Quotes:

“Claire’s Camera” runs 68 minutes and is as slender and unassuming, in its own way, as a Polaroid. But you may emerge from it not feeling like quite the same person, either.” – Los Angeles Times

“Ms. Huppert’s presence – steady, warm, thoughtful but with a casual air – keeps the entire enterprise classically comedic.” – New York Times

“The breezy Claire’s Camera isn’t only charming and funny, but also one of Hong’s most formally intuitive and sharply written films in some time.” – Slant Magazine
