South Korea's year shows some tragic things
22 April 2020 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

Prior to "In the Absence" and "Parasite", no South Korean movie had ever gotten nominated for an Oscar. I haven't seen the latter, but I just watched the former. It tells the story of one of the most tragic events in South Korea this century. Everyone should know this story.
