When his mother falls deathly ill, Youngsoo finds himself in an emotional crisis. With the shadow of his own mortality knocking on the door, he wonders if he should take the leap to start his own family and marry his longtime girlfriend Minjung. Once that idea takes root in his mind, rumors start flying about his soon-to-be-fiance: that she's been seen drinking with other men. When Youngsoo confronts her, she adamantly denies it. Soon more and more sightings of multiple Minjungs are being reported, complicating Youngsoo's marriage proposal idea and seeming to manifest all of his insecurities about life and love into several physical forms. This South Korean absurdist comedy by Hong Sang-soo (Right Now, Wrong Then, Our Sunhi) is an inspired reversal of surrealist director Luis Bunuel's masterpiece, That Obscure Object of Desire, which follows one woman played by multiple actresses. Yourself and Yours is a bizarre and playful meditation on relationship hang-ups and hesitancies, and all the people we can be in the face of tragedy.

Director Biography

Hong Sangsoo made the astounding debut with his first feature film The Day a Pig Fell into the Well in 1996. Since then, through the 17 films that he wrote and directed, Hong has consistently enjoyed using a complex and highly ordered architecture under a seemingly random surface created by spontaneous circumstances in depicting the characters in his films. Renowned for his unique cinematographic language and unprecedented aesthetics in filmmaking, Hong Sangsoo is considered as one of the most established auteurs in contemporary Korean cinema.
