“Infused with a wonderful sentimentality, Lee Isaac Chung’s fictionalised account of his rural US childhood explores the growing pains of a family farm.” Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian

Minari is a warm story of the Yi family moving in the 1980s from California to Arkansas. The father, Jacob, plans a better living for his wife and two young children farming Korean vegetables and selling them to wholesalers and restaurants. His wife Monica is less convinced and eventually they bring her eccentric mother over from South Korea to help look after the farm and the children.

Introvert Jong-soo meets Hae-mi, who claims to remember him from their childhood. The two begin seeing each other, but when Hae-mi returns from a trip, she is accompanied by wealthy socialite Ben. Director Lee Chang-dong fleshes out Haruki Murakami’s short story to immerse the viewer in the world of his characters whilst exploring male rage, class conflict and working-class struggles, as well as unrequited love and the nature of obsession. Burning “is a gripping nightmare” (The Guardian).
