fiction / covid-19 / date / love
Films in the age of COVID-19 have been created one after another. The film wittily portrays a couple in the pandemic to explain paradoxical impressions of word combinations of “romantic” and “distancing.” The couple goes to a playground for their first date. They want to see each other’s faces so they take off masks while holding their breath. When they have to follow the quarantine guidelines, the film naturally draws tension and humor. Image and sound of sloppy physical affection using sanitizer create a weird but pleasant feeling. [KIM Hyunmin]
