Take Care of my Cat

03/04/2011

Printed in Little White Lies magazine, July 2007.


Sometimes in film you get a moment so exquisitely observed, it has the hallmark of real life. And sometimes you get a film composed entirely of such moments, like this quietly beautiful portrait of a group of five former schoolfriends entering adulthood in small town Korea. Detailed, intricate, and lovingly crafted, Take Care Of My Cat has much in common with the mosaic-like textiles designed by one of the main characters. But whereas another character declares they “must be a little boring” to make, Jeong’s affection for her subject is obvious, and it’s precisely this texture of everyday life that makes her creation so absorbing.
