To the rhythm of a swig of memory, two friends clink glasses telling each other in turn about their holidays in Tong-Yeong, mixing, depending on the multiple mean- ings of the title, their impressions of summer in peals of laughter. It’s not only the effect of the hilarious argument that sees the two individuals evoking the same company while turning their backs on each other. Through two competitors in love, the filmmaker speaks directly of happiness, like the conjunction of a dispo- sition of mind and poetic learning. (AT)Hong Sang-soo
