In the moment before the movie cuts to black I realized how much I'd miss seeing these characters on the screen. It is an irresistible movie.

January 30, 2020
Despite its prevailing quietness, Minari is so full of life you can feel it (Lachlan Milne's tactile photography certainly helps).
January 27, 2020
Minari works quietly and methodically, embracing its lush rural setting with striking glimpses of its characters, alone against vast and empty landscapes.

Minari brings an honest story of family, love, selfishness, and humility. Chung doesn't hold back, and we can't help but have a fervent appreciation for Minari.

Whether tragic or beautiful or merely mundane, every scene is bursting with beauty.

Tender, lighthearted, and emotional, Minari showcases that what makes a family isn't the legacy - it's the people building that legacy.

Minari can feel a little overwhelming, but in the best possible way.
January 28, 2020
Minari allows us to spend time with a group of highly likable people, and I'm thankful I got the chance, if only because it taught me there is a job out there where all you do is look at chicken genitals all day to divide them by gender.

Minari is probably the most lasting and touching film to come out so far in 2020, and really is a film for everyone.

The lack of any showiness is, in fact, part of Minari's charm.

This is a delicate, small-scale drama told with an immense amount of authenticity by a filmmaker who is clearly attuned to the emotional rhythms of each of his characters.

Lee Isaac Chung crafts a sweet, charming, and emotional story of an immigrant family.

February 1, 2020
Chung's fifth film sings with the expertise of a seasoned filmmaker, to be sure, but it also feels like the kind of energetic, exuberant, deeply personal film that would mark a bright newcomer's debut.

By telling his story L Lee Isaac Chung has hit a peak as a filmmaker that might have been unthinkable just a few years ago.

January 30, 2020
Chung is very, very comfortable dealing with the grey areas found within his protagonists, and allows his incredibly strong cast to explore the depths of their feelings, no matter if it winds up in some uncomfortable places.
January 28, 2020
Minari swells with life-affirming observations and deep performances.
January 27, 2020
"Minari" is a raw and vividly remembered story of two simultaneous assimilations; it's the story of a family assimilating into a country, but also the story of a man assimilating into his family.
