A decision always leads to another possibility. In the mean time, all the other possibilities should vanish when you make the choice.
A woman is going to have to say yes or no. Fontaine hesitates when her long-time boyfriend Michel asks her to marry him. Though this is supposed to be her dream, she longs for something else. She fantasizes romances with a stranger on the street or with her patient, only to realize that reality is not as she sees it. Then something unexpected occurs.
With its episodic structure, this film depicts the delicate confusion of a woman about to marry. Fontaine’s state of limbo in between reality and imagination, between decision and hesitation reveals how uncertainty might be the very truths you are looking for, if you see through them for what they are. This charming piece conveys a dynamic flow of emotions by portraying the happenings of a small, ordinary life. (Lee Hyo-jeong)
