Synopsis

Based on a Haruki Murakami short story, Korean master Lee Chang-dong’s remarkable new thriller BURNING was the most acclaimed film of Cannes, setting a record for the highest-ever score achieved in the 18-year history of Screen International’s prestigious critics’ poll. Novelistic in scope, grandeur and impact, and featuring three remarkable performances, it’s a gripping psychological study of thwarted love, ambition and obsession.

While working as a courier in Seoul, aspiring writer Jongsu (Yoo Ah-in) encounters Haemi (Jun Jong-seo), a girl who once lived in his neighbourhood. She asks if he'd mind looking after her cat while she's away on a trip to Africa. But on her return, when he arrives at the airport to collect her in his run-down truck, Jongsu is surprised and confused to find Haemi accompanied by the handsome, Gatsby-esque Ben (a superbly enigmatic Steven Yeun, The Walking Dead). The three begin an awkward friendship, with Jongsu’s feelings for Haemi growing ever stronger, even if it’s apparent she has fallen under the spell of his rich and mysterious rival’s charms. Suddenly, after Ben makes a strange confession, Jongsu is led to question his motivations and he sets off on an increasingly desperate search to uncover the truth, even if the line between reality and imagination begins to blur.
