Burning (15)

Mystery, Drama

Korean mystery drama in which an introverted man's life is complicated by the appearance of an old friend and a wealthy man.

The critical consensus

Masterful mystery drama from South Korea's Chang-dong Lee.

*****Nikki Baughan, The List, 28/01/2019

Far from a conventional mystery, but the slow build of puzzle and intrigue gets right under your skin.

*****Trevor Johnston, Little White Lies, 31/01/2019

Director Lee Chang-dong has complete mastery of the tone here and he gets great, subtle performances from his cast.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 31/01/2019

Slow and difficult to get a hold on, Burning emerges as a brilliantly made one-off; puzzling, intelligent and ultimately mesmerising. And Jong-seo Jun is a revelation.

****(*)Ian Freer, Empire Online, 28/01/2019
