Still unknown, not rich enough and in despair about changing that, Ku Kyung-nam cannot escape anymore the “art film director” label, even at forty years. When the Jecheon festival asked him to be a member of the jury, he accepted with an idea in mind: perhaps he will have some rewarding encounters.
Though he fells asleep in front of the movies, its evenings in company of a childhood friend and others participants become more and more unlikely.

Through an oversized work, Hong Sang-Soo has developed an art of cinematic variation. Sang-Soo’s films are intertwined as much as they are far apart from each other, despite their common formal artisanal frame. With a singular cruelty and a dull anguish, Like you know it all plays recreates the South Korean filmmaker’s groggy loves and ephemeral encounters dear to his heart.
"A trivial and metaphysical tale, made of a moist and hallucinated lucidity, frighteningly hilarious.” Amélie Dubois // Les Inrockuptibles
"A sort of gender war, ruthless and funny, takes place there. Its correctness often triggers a depressive laugh in the audience." Jean-François Rauger , Le Monde
