Added to my films

Sunday - the only day of the week when lovers Huh Wook and Ji-youn meet. The girl is pregnant. But they have no money even for a cup of coffee. Ji-youn understands that the ordinary dreams about a family, a nice house with the garden will never become a reality. So she tells Huh Wook of a decision to end her pregnancy. The man is forced to find money. This Sunday will end with a darker night than usual. The film was banned for 37 years and released to the public many years after the director's death.

"One of South Korea's most respected filmmakers, Lee Man-hee, inspired by the works of Michelangelo Antonioni and Alain Resnais, has embraced the desperation of the entire era in his characters. Having developed a distinctive poetic cinematic languageof the popular melodrama genre at the time, he criticized a modern, but still extremely narrow-minded society and a growing social exclusion." (Dovilė Raustytė-Mateikė)
