Sound and Vision: 'Poetry' by Lee Chang-Dong - (12) screening
Push The Boat Out: Edinburgh’s International Poetry Festival
Summerhall - Red Lecture Theatre
The untapped poetry in the lives of ordinary people, leading seemingly ordinary lives, is expressed as high art in this gentle story of an aging woman who discovers the poetry within herself. Heartbreaking and inspiring but without an ounce of sentimentality, Yun Junghee’s memorable performance as Mija, whose life becomes ever more complicated by circumstances out-with her control, is as understated as it is powerful.
