Poetry (2010)

Movie Review

“Poetry is a beautiful, deep and unpretentious film that won Best Korean film in 2010 and was admired at Cannes. The film’s protagonist, Mia, has three passions in life: a love of pretty clothes, flowers and her grandson. Later, another one will be added to them – poetry and the desire to write at least one poem, and with it the desire to see beauty in everything. She may look ridiculous to others, her life is full of sorrows and disappointments, but in her search for humanity, beauty and peace she seems to be a challenge to a modern, indifferent society, as if she is looking for light where even the tiniest trace of hope has gone out.
