The film does bring on a few laughs but doesn't make one engage with the situation and the characters. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- [An] uninspired pity party comedy. Full Review
Hong tells the story in long and dialogue-filled takes, done in a soft black-and-white that feels like pencil drawings, to extract deep and earnest confessions with a graceful touch that shudders with the life-shaking emotions at their core. Full Review
Hong Sang-soo directs another minimalistic film, which focuses on witty dialogue to get his comments through, and occasionally functions as a stage play, particularly due to the long takes of people simply talking Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Although The Day After seems a bit too trivial to compare to some of Sangsoo's more substantial titles, this melancholy faced comedy should amuse the director's fan base. Full Review
Shot in chilly, silky digital black and white, it plays with chronology in a way that seems both casual and musically precise.

Rating: C -- A lazy shoulder shrug of a movie that never bothers to work out who its characters are, what they want, or why their ostensible problems should be of interest to anyone else. Full Review
