Once burned – twice shy

When his girlfriend Hae-mi returns from her African vacation arm in arm with her new best friend Ben, Jong-su feels that something is very, very wrong. And when Hae-mi suddenly disappears, he is convinced it’s Ben’s doing. Based on a short story by Haruki Murakami, BURNING is both a smoldering psychological thriller and a study of class in modern-day South Korea. The complex characters, crisp cinematography and smart editing, makes Lee Chang-dong’s new opus an intensely exciting and masterfully crafted mystery.
