Past Lives



5 March 2024

Past Lives

Director : Celine Song

Running Time: 105 mins

Country/Year: USA, S Korea 2023

Cert 12





Writer and director Celine Song’s first feature is a veritable tour de force. It tells the tale of two South Korean childhood sweethearts Nora (Greta Lee) and Hae Sung Teo Yoo) who are painfully separated when Nora’s parents move to Toronto.  After years apart their lives intertwine again, but by now Nora is in a relationship with Arthur (John Magaro). Song brings us an achingly beautiful love story, but this thoughtful film offers much more; it is an exploration of how people change over distance and time.  Beautiful camerawork and a sublimely understated soundtrack complement the subtle portrayal of emotions by all three principals, resulting in a totally absorbing film.
