The intent of this film is not to show Monika as someone with a disability, but to show that she is an ordinary and a beautiful person. I intend to show Monika during an ordinary day, slowly and serenly. At the end of the film, we hear a song saying, “Today looks like a bad day, but everything will be all right.” These lyrics represent what I’d like to say about Monika. Monika smiles to me, wanting to dance, and I see a picture in which she is dancing.

    After studying at the Polish National Film School in Lodz, KIM Heejung made her first feature film The Wonder Years (2007), the story of a girl who embarks on a journey to find her real mother. The film focuses on the troubled identity of a person who longs for something that doesn’t belong to her. Her second feature, Grape Candy (2011) is a rumination of memories which dominate the present. Her third feature Snow Paths (2015) is the story of a man attempting to overcome trauma who is sent to a Catholic sanatorium for alcoholism, and meets a nun who can spiritually commune with dead souls. Her latest feature, A French Woman follows the delirium of a woman who confronts her painful past through a mysterious time gate.
