I finally got around to watching the film Minari. I had seen that this movie had won a Golden Globe award and wanted to give it a try. I haven’t seen very many Korean language films. It was a sweet movie and I enjoyed watching it overall.
What I liked
- The watching the experiences of the Yi family as they try to make a home in a new place.
- The portrayal of the husband and wife’s relationship that was filled with uncertainty and doubt.
- The son and grandmother’s relationship was my favorite part of this movie. I loved seeing evolution of their bond. They are just too cute!
What I didn’t like
- The movie was on the longer side and I struggled a little to get through it.
- The pacing of the story is slower than what I’m used to.
- I was a little bummed with the ending because it left some loose ends that I wanted to know more about.
This was a heartwarming movie about adapting to new surroundings, working towards dreams, and the meaning of famliy. Even though the movie felt a bit long and had a slower pace, it was still worth watching.
