Plot: A man and a woman meet in the hospital after their respective partners are involved in a car accident. After learning that their spouses have been having an affair, the two begin one of their own.
«Where the film rises above simplistic love stories is through its insecurity and truth, involving guilt, loyalty, past emotional ties and the impossibility of wiping the slate clean and starting afresh. What they have is what they are. What will be and what was is unpredictable.»
«“April Snow” is purposeful filmmaking, the kind that has come to define director Hur’s still relatively short career. There are no hints of romance between the two cuckolded spouses until almost the 40-minute mark, when she finds him tossing snowballs in the parking lot alone at night.»
«April Snow works as a film at every possible level. It defies the obvious trap of melodrama inherent in the situation. The acting and chemistry of the two leads is impeccable, as is the distanced and silent tone of the film. Director Hur Jin Ho and actors Bae Yong Jonn and Son Ye Jin scripted the film as they were shooting it.»
