Go in with no expectations, except that it is a slow-paced simple story, told in an epic fashion with wonderful cinematography and understated acting. It got under my skin like few movies do, a story about class, jealousy, ego, desire, dreams, etc. Best movie of the year, possibly.

This movie is a generational manifesto. A boy that loves a girl; the girl loves a richer boy; the richer boy has no moral values. In this chain, the plot unfolds and the characters' personalities develop to became extremely complex. That's why this is a manifesto for 90-00's generation: they live of contraddictions between their first-world issues (to be in the forgotten middle-low class, to be too rich, to have a father in prison, and so on...) and their desire to dance, to sing, to love, to be free. Some can get past these contraddictions, but others tend to became sociopaths, like Jong-su. Chang-dong Lee creates contrasts with these complexities, playing with beautiful scenarios (the frame with the three characters sitting together and staring at the twilight, seen from their backs, is wonderful) and political references (we see and hear Trump talking about the (in)famous "wall", and Jong-su's house is near the North Korean border, from which we can hear messages of propaganda). This movie shines a light on young people, their mind and their feeling of inadequacy, and it does that majestically. 8.5/10

An entire film where the actors read between the lines a story made only of things left unsaid. Majestic.

This is a movie for people who want to get inside of a movie and roll around inside of it. For days. The movie itself is a slow burn (sorry for the pun) and the ending won't be for everyone. If you enjoy a movie that makes you think and research for days in order to appreciate all that you saw (and didn't see) this movie is for you. follow me at https://IHATEBadMovies.com or facebook IHateBadMovies

A slow-burning mystery about economics, class, and sexual jealousy. And cats.

In his first film in eight years, writer/director Lee Chang-dong (Oasis; Secret Sunshine; Poetry) begins this protean narrative as an almost John Hughes-esque teen romance, before shifting gears into a story of sexual and More

Burning singes its psychological character study with a thrillingly igneous mystery. The cosmic fires of the sun. Its radiance encapsulating our world with warmth and tenderness. The perfect distance for sustainability. Equilibrium. Its rich beating rays corrupting the impressionable youth, granting More
