Review- Little Forest (2018)

February 26, 2021

I found this movie after watching Netflix’s Space Sweepers and prompted me to look for other works from Kim Tae Ri. I remember her from The Handmaiden and I wanted to see more of her.

In Little Forest, Hye Won (Kim Tae Ri) escapes her life in Seoul after failing the teacher’s exam and returns her childhood home in rural Korea. There, she attempts to escape and find an answer for her ‘failed’ life.

The movie is similar to Jon Favreau’s Chef in that there’s no antagonist. You watch it for its vibe, its characters, and the beautiful scenes of Korean food.
