Award-winning South Korean film, Burning, comes to Three Rivers Film Club at the Old Bakery Studios in Truro. The film that scooped the FIPRESCI critics’ prize at Cannes, demands to be seen when it screens on Sunday 16th June.
“Sex, envy and pyromania make for a riveting mystery in Lee Chang-dong’s masterfully crafted Murakami adaptation.”
★★★★ – The Guardian
Based on Haruki Murakami’s short story ‘Barn Burning’ and nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 2018, Lee Chang-dong’s Burning follows introvert Jong-soo (Yoo Ah-in), who meets Hae-mi (Jeon Jong-seo), after she claims to remember him from their childhood. The two begin seeing each other, but when Hae-mi returns from a trip, she is accompanied by wealthy socialite Ben (Steven Yeun).
The acclaimed South Korean director brings to cinematic life Murakami’s short story to immerse the viewer in the world of his characters whilst exploring male rage, class conflict and working-class struggles, as well as unrequited love and the nature of obsession.
