WINNER OF THE CANNES 2018 FIPRESCI INTERNATIONAL CRITICS’ PRIZE
Adapted from a short story by Haruki Murakami, Lee Chang-Dong’s BURNING follows the story of deliveryman Jongsu (Ah-In Yoo), who is out on a job when he runs into Haemi (Jong-Seo Jun), a girl who once lived in his neighbourhood. Friendly and flirtatious, she asks if he can look after her cat while she’s away on a trip to Africa, and he happily obliges.
On her return, she asks Jongsu to meet her at the airport- and promptly introduces him to Ben
(Steven Yeun) - an enigmatic young man she met during her trip. As the group spend more
time together, Jongsu slowly gets to know the inscrutable visitor – until one day, Ben tells him
about his most unusual hobby...
Lee Chang-dong's sublime mystery thriller can be seen in cinemas across the UK now.
