Git centers around a film director who, in the middle of starting his next screenplay, remembers a promise he'd made ten years earlier.
While staying on a remote southern island off Jeju-do, he and his girlfriend of the time agreed to come back and meet at the same motel exactly ten years in the future.
In other words, they only represent a 'snapshot' look using the latest data from 2010.
Nonetheless, it is important to recognize that such marriage patterns have evolved and changed over time.
Comprising works by Jang Jin (Someone Special), Lee Young-jae (Harmonium in My Memory) and Song, 1.3.6 was intended to explore environmental themes and was slotted to open the first Green Film Festival in Seoul in late October.
Alas, the festival's expectations were confounded, first in that only Lee Young-jae's work really engaged environmental issues in a direct way (the other two were merely set in rural areas), and second by the fact that Song went out and shot a 70-minute film.
Named Lee So-yeon (played by -- sure enough -- actress Lee So-yeon of Untold Scandal), the woman is twelve years his junior, and possesses an unusual energy and enthusiasm.In Song's other works, such elements sometimes feel forced or self-consciously arty, but here they blend with the otherworldly presence of the island and add a sense of mystery.Git (which means either a triangular flag or "feather" in Korean) is surprising in several respects.This may have been what happened with Git by Song Il-gon, the director of Flower Island (2001), Spider Forest (2004), and various award-winning short films including The Picnic (1999).Git was originally commissioned as a 30-minute segment of the digital omnibus film 1.3.6.To capture a natural setting so well on a medium that often feels cold and sterile is an unusual accomplishment.
