Minari ★★★★

Seeing a new world through young eyes, cultural and cinematic language retranslated, is refreshing and beautiful. 

There’s beauty in nature and people and art. It’s surviving that can make us ugly. The only way to survive is together. 

To plant a garden, you need only seed, sun, soil, and water. Let this family film flow all around you. 

When little David pours himself some Mountain Dew that’s damn cute. I definitely think the film gives attention to the goals or experiences of each character to the point that it feels less like one story and more like a lot of small, unfinished stories. This is a super small criticism but we get some things developed more than others. 

I think the story needed more balance but the emotion and direction is great.
