In Between Days

An interesting low-budget, independent film shot in New York City about Korean expatriates living abroad. Seemingly shot all on DV, it has a kind of Cinema Verite, "reality show" quality to it.

The story revolves around a young girl, who leaves voicemails to her dad still living in Korea, about her life, how much she misses him and whether he wants to see her. She then falls in love with her only friend an she becomes increasingly more alienated from her family and friends.

A subtle portrayal of the "jealously" game of insincerity is heartbreaking as the pernicious insecurity of young teenagers is seen eating away at potential happiness.

Directed by So Yong Kim 2006, 82 mins. "A lonely teen falls in love with her only friend."
