A film consisting of three parts, telling the story of three different women named Anne as a charming French visitor to a seaside town in South Korea. The topic of infidelity ties all three stories together, as the three Anne’s find themselves in situations that begin to echo one another, whether through interactions with the locals or certain recurring characters.

It almost seems as if Hong is poking fun at his own single-minded oeuvre, creating a fractal representation of how his other films obliquely interrelate.


The New York Times by A.O. Scott

What the point here might be is a bit more elusive. It may be simply to allow Ms. Huppert, one of the most adventurous actresses in movies, the opportunity to try something new. And that might be enough.


IndieWire by Eric Kohn

In Another Country is a paragon of any given Hong movie's intrinsic charms, and yet it also manages to break from the pattern by including an English-speaking character as one of its leads.


New York Post by Farran Smith Nehme

The conceit is slight, but Hong's playful structure conceals sharp observations about fantasies, communication, and how foreigners and natives interact.


Time Out by Joshua Rothkopf

No exchanges flare into true weirdness; rather, the mood is lingering and tentative. Undoubtedly, this is the movie's intent, but it's a fairly banal comment on foreign estrangement (or love) that could have used some roughing up.


Village Voice by Nick Pinkerton

The cumulative impression is of figures being lightly traced in the sand only to be inevitably washed away, intentionally ephemeral and quite charming for it.


The Guardian by Peter Bradshaw

In Another Country looks very much like something written on a napkin and shot in the one afternoon that Huppert could come to South Korea. Slight, diverting, forgettable.
