YesAsia Editorial Description

Family Ties director Kim Tae Yong transplants Lee Man Hee's sixties classic Late Autumn to Seattle for an English-language remake starring two of Asia's biggest names, Tang Wei (Lust, Caution) and Hyun Bin (Come Rain, Come Shine). Tang Wei won Best Actress at the 47th Baeksang Arts Awards for her performance.

Inmate Anna (Tang Wei) is granted three-day parole to attend her mother's funeral. On the bus to Seattle, she meets a caddish man on the run, Hoon (Hyun Bin). More similar than they realize, the two bond as they tour the city and play-act different scenarios, knowing that their time together is shortlived. What's left unsaid is as important as what is said in this evocative story of fleeting passion and solace.

This edition includes commentary, "One Day in Seattle", deleted scenes with commentary, music video, and trailer.

Synopsis
수인번호 2537번 애나. 7년 째 수감 중, 어머니의 부고로 3일 간의 휴가가 허락된다. 장례식에 가기 위해 탄 시애틀 행 버스, 쫓기듯 차에 탄 훈이 차비를 빌린다. 사랑이 필요한 여자들에게 에스코트 서비스를 하는 그는, 누군가로부터 도망치는 중이다.

“나랑 만나서 즐겁지 않은 손님은 처음이니까, 할인해 줄게요. 오늘 하루.”
훈은 돈을 갚고 찾아가겠다며 억지로 시계를 채워주지만 애나는 무뚝뚝하게 돌아선다. 7년 만에
만난 가족도 시애틀의 거리도, 자기만 빼 놓고 모든 것이 변해 버린 것 같아 낯설기만 한 애나. 돌아가 버릴까? 발길을 돌린 터미널에서 훈을 다시 만난다. 그리고 장난처럼 시작된 둘의 하루. 시애틀을 잘 아는 척 안내하는 훈과 함께, 애나는 처음으로 편안함을 느낀다.

“2537번, 지금 돌아가는 길입니다…”
이름도 몰랐던 애나와 훈. 호기심이던 훈의 눈빛이 진지해지고 표정 없던 애나의 얼굴에 희미한 미소가 떠오를 때쯤, 누군가 훈을 찾아 오고 애나가 돌아가야 할 시간도 다가오는데...

Professional Review of "Late Autumn (2010) (DVD) (Coffee Book) (First Press Limited Edition) (Korea Version)"

August 31, 2012

Tang Wei and Hyun Bin impress in Late Autumn, director Kim Tae-Yong's involving if unremarkable update of a thrice filmed tale (twice by prolific director Lee Man-Hee) about two dubious individuals who find a chance connection. Kim moves the location from Korea to Seattle and sets the story among the Asian diaspora. Somber prison inmate Anna Chen (Tang Wei) receives a 72-hour furlough to attend her mother's funeral. Her reason for incarceration is not known yet, though a wordless prologue gives a big clue. En route from Fresno to Seattle, she meets ladykiller gigolo Hoon (Hyun Bin), who's on the run from as-yet-undisclosed dangers.

Hoon borrows US$30 to catch the same bus Anna is riding, and while she flatly refuses any lasting connection, he insists on somehow meeting her again to pay her back. She doesn't hold him to it, but after awkwardly interacting with her family, she bumps into Hoon on the Seattle streets. A chance meeting becomes an attempted fling, desired solace becomes a silent date, and before long the two become something akin to friends. Romance does follow, but not as quickly or as completely as one might hope for. At the end there is minor illumination, but a climax worthy of the film's two gorgeous leads? Not so fast.

Putting previous versions of Late Autumn aside, Kim Tae-Yong's take finds its greatest strength in its characters and the actors who play them. The slick Hoon spouts much empty dialogue, but his devil-may-care cad emerges as a man with a sympathetic if compromised soul. Hyun Bin is physically perfect in the role, and is able to play off Hoon's awkward English as a part of the character's verbal mask. Tang Wei outdistances Hyun handily through her silence; Tang absolutely owns the screen when she says nothing, her stony expressions made riveting by subtle body language and also her eyes, which limitlessly portray her inner emotions.

The leads forge a convincing connection through glances and silent tension, which is great because the script is far less forthcoming. Late Autumn is deliberately elliptical in its narrative, with greater conflicts confined to only two or three scenes. In between sudden and sometimes labored turns in the story, the film plays out as a routine domestic melodrama or a Seattle travelogue (the city is portrayed attractively and enjoyably by DP Kim Woo-Hyung). Some details take the length of the film to get explained, meaning lots of time waiting for answers. But it's to the actors' credit that they're able to do so much with so little. As a demonstration of wordless performance, Late Autumn is a clinic.

The film's character-through-inaction is so convincing that when dialogue does show up, it's noticeably ill-fitting. Hoon and Anna sometimes engage in knowing pantomime, which can be silly or ridiculous, as it is during a scene where the two provide voices for a pair of quarrelling lovers in the distance. Anna's dialogue, especially, comes off as forced and far too literate for the woman she seems to be portraying. This scene and a subsequent, out-of-nowhere fantasy dance sequence (not between the leads) gives Late Autumn an air of pretension that falls flat. The film has a few funny moments, but they're awkward ones. One such moment, a dust-up between Hoon and Anna's old flame (Jun Kim) at Anna's mother's funeral, is hilarious but likely inadvertently so.

Late Autumn is hard to appreciate as a complete film. It's probably too unrevealing and clumsy for discerning western tastes, though fans of Tang Wei and Hyun Bin will be tickled by the sheer amount of time the film spends with the stars. For the art-appointed Asian cineaste, the film is a flawed curiosity, with its greatest accomplishment being the space and patience given the actors. In that, Late Autumn is a grand success, as it creates life and emotion through silent, subdued performance - a thing that few media besides movies can completely and compellingly do. Late Autumn is questionably fulfilling, but simply watching Tang Wei and Hyun Bin is worth the time.
