RETURN
Universally critically praised on arrival at Cannes, Burning adapts Haruki Murakami’s short story into a mysterious thriller about obsessive love. Jong-soo (Yoo Ah-in) dreams of becoming a writer, but is far from his ambitions when he bumps into Hae-mi (Jeon Jong-seo), who claims to know him from childhood. They begin a relationship, but she vanishes, only to return with a new boyfriend Ben (The Walking Dead’s Steven Yeun) in tow. When Ben reveals his unsettling hobby, the pieces begin to fall into place for an incendiary finale. One of South Korea’s finest filmmakers, Lee Chang-dong (Poetry, Secret Sunshine) has created a work as luminous as it is mysterious. Full of indelible images and unbearable poignancy, this is a must watch.
