In Claire's Camera, a philandering film director is again a major plot point and Kim Minhee, again the star. But this time the mood is light and airy as a summer breeze, thanks in large part to a lively performance from Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher, Elle). Huppert plays Claire, a school teacher with a camera that might be magical on her first visit to Cannes. She happens upon a film sales assistant, Manhee (Kim), recently fired from her job and also meets So Wansoo (Jung Jinyoung), a film director whose one-night stand with Manhee was the reason for her firing. Beneath the humor and charm on the surface of Claire's Camera, Hong explores the power of images to transform us.
