Reviews


100
IndieWire - David Ehrlich
Gentle as the stream that flows through the Yi’s property, and yet powerful enough to reverberate for generations to come, Chung’s loving — and immensely lovable — immigrant drama interrogates the American Dream with the hard-edged hope of a family that needs to believe in something before they lose all faith in each other.

TheWrap - Carlos Aguilar
Minari beams with subtle wonder.
91
Entertainment Weekly - David Canfield
Minari works quietly and methodically, embracing its lush rural setting with striking glimpses of its characters, alone against vast and empty landscapes. Chung’s directing feels drawn from memory, the scattered and sparkling quality of recollections, carefully assembled. It’s perhaps why every second rings so true.
91
The Playlist - Gregory Ellwood
There is barely a manufactured minute in the film. Everything fits together organically and in a narrative film that is much harder to pull off than it sounds.

Variety - Peter Debruge
Chung transforms the specificity of his upbringing into something warm, tender and universal.
