A reunion between two friends tells us more about their current circumstances than their past in this drama from South Korean filmmaker Whang Cheol-mea. Jin-hee (Sung Su-jung) and Ye-won (Lee Hye-jin) were close friends when they were in their early teens -- both girls loved acting and dreamed of one day becoming professional actors, playing the great roles for adoring audiences. Years later, things have turned out differently for them; Ye-won went on to college and is now a minor functionary in a large corporation, while Jin-hee lost her part-time job in the recession and does volunteer work as a labor activist. When the old friends are reunited by chance, Jin-hee and Ye-won are happy at first to talk about old times and their adolescent adventures. But the longer they're together, the more obvious it becomes that Jin-hee and Ye-won don't have much in common anymore, and as Ye-won begins to absorb some of Jin-hee's bourgeois habits, the more fortunate friend grows annoyed and resentful of her working-class counterpart. Moscow (the title refers to the women's shared love of Chekhov's +The Three Sisters) was an official selection at the 2010 Rotterdam International Film Festival.
