Released in: 2020
Intercourse Showcased: No
Family/Adult: Family Genre: Drama
Sit it down and relax. 'Minari' is a slow-paced film with a runtime of 115 minutes. The plot is simple but the representation of this movie is beautiful. The cinematography is excellent and Lachlan Milne deserves the appreciation. Lee Issac Chung directed it with finesse.
The metaphorical meaning of Minari is beautiful. After watching the film, the meaning draws on you. Youn Yuh-jung (Soonja) acted brilliantly and deserves praise and appreciation. She is the soul of this movie. Steven Yeun (Jacob) too gave an amazing performance. Also, can't ignore Alan S. Kim (David) who acted brilliantly.
Let's talk about the plot in brief without spoiling anything, shall we? Minari encompasses a variety of things: family bond, the then society, work culture, organic farming, etc. The highlight of this film is the relationship between the grandmother and her grandson. The film gets to an emotional point showcasing them. However, the climax scene is both deeply emotional and satisfying. The most important thing is to understand the meaning of Minari and what the director actually trying to tell us.
Sic_final_verdict: One of the best movies of 2020. A must watch.
