karsten’s review published on Letterboxd:
I keep seeing the word "tender" slapped on every review for this and I....okay, yeah, I get it now. In a year full of beautiful film scores, this absolutely takes the cake. Both that and the cinematography feel SO dreamy. They simultaneously capture the hazy perspective of the parents, the old age of the grandmother, and the childlike wonder for both children.
Minari is such a specific movie full of specific scenes that all do specific things. What a vague way of describing a film's specificity. Essentially, it's unforgettable. I miss movie theatres.
