Minari ★★★★½

"Minari is Wonderful, Wonderful!"

It really is! This one hit me deep in the soul hole because it reminded me so much of my own childhood. Both of my immigrant parents married young and struggled to make ends meet. I even remember my sister and I would make a 'Peace flag' using a plastic bag on a stick and we would wave it around whenever our parents would fight.

Everything about this film is so tender, it feels like one long nostalgic hazy dream that you never want to wake up from. The score is pure magic, the cinematography: beautiful, and every performance is pitch perfect but for me David and Grandma stole the show and my heart!

Give this film every award going. It's a masterpiece!

9.5/10
