Lee Chang-dong’s follow-up to Poetry is a sublime mystery thriller of obsessive love, adapted from Haruki Murakami’s short story Barn Burning. An isolated young man, Jong-soo has a menial job in Seoul and dreams of becoming a writer, when he is accosted by Hae-mi, who claims to remember him from their shared village childhood. They begin a relationship, but when she returns from a trip accompanied by the wealthy, urbane Ben, Jong-soo is puzzled and confused. Chang-dong fleshes out Murakami’s slender short story to create a mysterious world of immense power, that this epic, slow-burning film hooks us into, alongside its main character.
