Claire’s Camera (2017)

A refreshingly sunny performance from Isabelle Huppert is at the center of this comic charmer from South Korean master Hong Sangsoo. 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 Minhee), recently laid off after a one-night stand with a film director (Jung Jinyoung). Together, this unlikely pair become detectives of sorts, as they wander around the seaside resort town, working to better understand the circumstances of Manhee’s firing—and developing new outlooks on life in the process.
