Return to Seoul

Return to Seoul

After an impulsive travel decision to visit friends, Freddie, 25, returns to South Korea for the first time, where she was born before being adopted and raised in France. Freddie suddenly finds herself embarking on an unexpected journey in a country she knows so little about, taking her life in new and unexpected directions. Director Davy Chou, who was born in France to Cambodian parents, unveils his heartfelt sophomore film in elliptical acts spanning eight years. Guided by cinematographer Thomas Favel’s eye and Dounia Sichov’s masterful editing, we trail Freddie’s absorbing transformation from a woman navigating the meandering roads of nature and nurture to directions unknown. First-time actor Ji-min Park brings enormous intrigue to a character whose compass guides the film. RETURN TO SEOUL is a spectacular voyage for anyone in search of home or for eternal travelers who already know that it’s not the destination — it’s the journey.
