Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Shin Dong-il's low-key character study Host & Glory concerns a friendship that begins between a middle aged film obsessed man and an idealistic missionary. After the film lover accidentally locks himself inside his bathroom, he becomes overcome with concern that his life will end before he can achieve his dream of actually making a movie. When the missionary finds him and releases him, the two spend the day together, eventually taking in a showing of Uzak.
