South Korea / 1999 / Korean / 129 minutes

Where does a movie go when it begins with the suicide of its protagonist, Yong-ho? Lee (Burning) takes us backwards, step by step, through an unfurling in which we slowly come to understand the connections between human trajectory and national crisis. Yong-ho has evolved from innocence to despair, destroying relationships and hope. His life has been embedded with the trajectory of South Korea itself, marked by student demonstrations and savage repressions. A dark, powerful history, personal and political.
