Hong Sangsoo's Critically-Acclaimed 'Right Now, Wrong Then' Headed for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Apr 12, 2017 at 08:33 AM PDT by

The winner of the Golden Leopard Award at the 2015 Locarno International Film Festival will be getting the Blu-ray treatment next month.

In an early announcement to retailers, Grasshopper Film is working on 'Right Now, Wrong Then' for Blu-ray on May 2.

Quite by accident, a film director arrives in town a day early. With time to kill before his lecture, he stops by a restored palace and meets a fledgling artist. She's never seen any of his films, but knows he's famous. They talk, they go to her workshop to look at her paintings, and they have sushi and soju. More conversation follows, along with more drinks, and then an awkward get-together with friends where all sorts of secrets are revealed. All the while, they may or may not be falling for each other. Then, quite unexpectedly, we begin again, but now things appear somewhat different. An uncanny romantic comedy, Right Now, Wrong Then is a deliciously intricate masterwork from filmmaker Hong Sangsoo.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include: Lost in the Mountains (2009, 31 minutes), a short film by Hong Sang-soo; Video introduction by filmmaker/critic Dan Sallitt (25 minutes); Press Conference with director Hong Sangsoo and actress Kim Minhee at the 68th Locarno Film Festival (19 minutes); and Original Theatrical Trailer.
