A master of intensely emotional human dramas, director Lee Chang-dong (Poetry) is a leading light of contemporary Korean cinema, and his place on the international stage was cemented by this stirring and unpredictable work examining grief and deliverance. An effortless mix of light and uncompromising darkness, Secret Sunshine (Miryang) stars Cannes best actress winner Jeon Do-yeon (The Housemaid) as a widowed piano teacher who moves with her young son from Seoul to her late husband's provincial hometown for a fresh start. Quietly expressive, supple filmmaking and sublime, subtle performances distinguish this remarkable portrayal of the search for grace amid tragedy.

I am not going to go into a detailed analytical review of this film, I do not have time. So all I will say is that this film is amazing, by far the second best Lee Chang Dong film. Jeon Do Yeon's performance is phenomenal. Before I saw this film I did not particularly rate her, however, the way she carries this film almost single handedly deserves the up most respect. The acting, story, directing and script are all first class, but with Mr Lee at the helm it is not a surprise.
