Romance among striking modernist buildings. True art house fare.
“Meth and modernism are really big here.” Casey (Haley Lu Richardson)
If you need an example of a modern art film, look no further than the Columbus film of Korean director Kogonada. It’s a minimalist treatment of familial interaction and non-sexual intimacy worthy of Richard Linklater in his early Sunrise franchise. Its greatest achievement is bonding architecture with humanity so that the former becomes a character itself.
As for the light tone of the opening quote, Columbus the film, in an act of humane tenderness, never makes fun of the people or the city.
Korean Jin (John Cho) meets Casey in small town Columbus, Indiana. Although it feels a bit like a clichéd cow town, contrarily it has some of the best modernist architecture in the USA just as the couple deal with modern challenges as they blend their millennial dysfunctions with the seriousness of love and death. He is visiting his comatose architect father while she is fighting with herself to stay at home and tend to addicted mother while a university offering her fulfillment for her architectural enthusiasm is trying to tear her away.
Although the two are developing love that is chaste and from afar, their conversation gradually takes on depth mirrored in the growing presence of buildings from the likes of Deborah Berke, Eero Saarinen, and James Stewart Polshek, a conjunction of the real and almost ethereal, as several of the stunningly stark, simple and transparent buildings reflect. That the director chooses to shoot a whole scene in a mirror, and others briefly is a tribute to the interest he has in appearance and reality and the importance of place.
This intensely and immaculately filmed indie is a fitting declaration of the melancholy unity between living lovers and dynamic architecture. Enjoy the view and dialogue; movie-making doesn’t need to offer more.
Not slow, not boring
Speaking for myself, it took me about the first 20 minutes of the film to get some idea where it was going, which was about the amount of time it took the characters to figure out each other and where THEY were going. The 2 main characters are well-played, as noted elsewhere, and the supporting cast, particularly Posey and Culkin, are up to the challenge. Is the relationship between them going anywhere? It develops while we watch the two characters change each others’ viewpoints, and at the end each has made a significant decision, is going in a different direction from where they started, and the two have become pretty important to each other. The story is convincing and beautiful to watch.
