Road movie runs on alcohol
22 August 2009 | by poikkeusSee all my reviews

When a slacker (Hyeok-jin) discovers he's lost his girlfriend, he's inconsolable - but his three buddies hatch a plan to blow away the blues - a big party with lots of food and suds. The next day, his hard-drinking friends flake out, leaving him to survive against people he meets on the road, who are considerably less reliable. What results is a road movie of sorts during which our hero loses his money, cell phone, clothes, and learns altogether too much about his former girlfriend. Cheap soju is the most convenient solution to his woes, but his drinking quickly moves to heavier stuff - including a homemade brew that's claimed to be cure-all for everything from the common cold to drunkenness itself; you begin to wonder if he's even going to survive the ordeal.

DAYTIME DRINKING starts off slowly, develops with the random feel of a road movie, then settles into a relaxed rhythm of its own laconic humor. Not laugh-at-loud humor; it's more the "chuckle-to-yourself" variety, and pleasant enough once it starts moving.
