It's been a minute since I saw a Hong Sang Soo movie, so maybe it's time to jump back in. Admittedly, I'm not the Korean auteur's biggest fan, but I'm willing to let him work the same charms on me that he seems to work on so many other cinephiles. Locarno prize winner Hotel by the River arrives on U.S. screens - its first theatrical release - on the 15th of February, and the above trailer is our first motion look at the picture, albeit with a highly unusual voiceover. Looks promising, even for a Hong hater like me!
