Aki Menzies’s review published on Letterboxd:
“Among all the people you know, how many do you understand?“
House of Hummingbird is a beautiful film that captures, and makes you feel, a wide range of emotions. I’m so excited to see more from writer/director Bora Kim after this debut.
The film is long, and some of the slower and quieter parts can be frustrating. But right when any scene feels too bleak or numb, Hummingbird offers just enough sweetness to keep us going. It’s one of those rare movies that makes you want to close your eyes and sit for a while.
