The film director Tehun who came from Korea to Gojo-city in Nara prefecture walks around the town with Takeda, the staff guide from the Tourism Division, along with Mijon, assistant and interpreter, to meet various people and listen to various stories. In the documentary style monochrome screen, a dense occasion flows. And in the first chapter current time mixes with the past. Subsequently, a pale love of Korean women and Japanese men is described on the same place. On the color screen in the second chapter, eternal time flows, thinking about the past. Two stories connected by fireworks are connected in a form that have never seen before and invite to a dream space.

From Aida Toji

In France, suddenly interrupted conversation is expressed poetically "When an angel passed by". “ひと夏のファンタジア”(한여름의 판타지아/2014) " may be a rare film worldwide, which put this "angel" on the screen.
The first half is monochrome, the second half is a two-curtain form of color, there is no so-called intermission, and the transition from monochrome to color seamlessly takes place with the flashing of certain motifs. There is no joint, monochrome and color are the ground continuation, we convinced in the dimension exceeding the theory, it will be relieved. For example, "Angel" is passing by then.

In the first chapter, the Korean woman interprets the question of the Korean film director, the Japanese male answers, the woman interprets it again and returns it to the director carefully. Time when my words are interpreted. And the time until the other party’s words are interpreted. I cannot but silence then, but irreplaceable fertility lives in that time.

*

To want to know the other party. Trying to know the other party. To want to approach the other party. Trying to approach the other party. This movie shows in a series of progressive form that the time of silence is the magic to change curiosity to prayer.

*

The time of silence, which only has to describe this "angel", is colored in the second chapter and forms a silent richness when love is born. We should all know. When you are in front of someone who you have just started love, there is no other way than to "wait", that a quiet moment will get into your mind. That is an "angel". The inexplicable moment is chased seriously by the movie.

"한여름의 판타지아" is a movie that meets "Angel". We are convinced when we meet "angels". To watch a movie is to pray to "angel".
