Minari

I really felt like this was an authentic film.  We’ve seen the main theme before and at several points in the movie it seemed like the movie might go down a specific path but it never does.  The addition of the grandmother really brought a nice bit of humor and color to the movie that it didn’t seem to have before.  The whole film is extremely subtle and for those who are patient enough to invest yourself in it the reward is excellent.
