Travelling Film Festival: Burning

January 14, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

A love triangle mystery based on a Haruki Murakami short story, Korean great Lee Chang-dong’s (Secret SunshinePoetry) latest was hailed as the best-reviewed film at Cannes.

WINNER: FIPRESCI CRITICS’ PRIZE, CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2018; JURY GRAND PRIZE, ASIA PACIFIC SCREEN AWARDS 2018
SELECTED: SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL 2018

While on a delivery, Jongsu (Yoo Ah-in) encounters Haemi (Jong-seo Jun) who reminds him that they were neighbours as children. Later that day, the two become lovers, and when Haemi asks Jongsu to feed her cat while she’s away on a trip to Africa, Jongsu believes that they are to embark on a relationship. But when Haemi returns from the trip with a handsome, rich companion, Ben (Steven Yeun, The Walking DeadOkja SFF 2017), Jongsu is left confused and heartbroken. A strange confession, and Haemi’s sudden disappearance, thrusts Jongsu’s world into further disarray and he begins an increasingly desperate investigation. Anchored by superb performances, Burning is a meticulously constructed mystery reflecting on love, class, memory and rage. Winner of the FIPRESCI critics’ prize at Cannes, it became the highest-scoring film in the history of Screen International’s jury grid.

This is a beautifully crafted film loaded with glancing insights and observations into an understated triangular relationship, one rife with subtle perceptions about class privilege, reverberating family legacies, creative confidence, self-invention, sexual jealousy, justice and revenge. – The Hollywood Reporter
