Burning

This Korean thriller of deception and paranoia sees a guileless man lend favour to a woman who claims to know him, and the mysterious American she introduces to his life. Tension builds when worlds collide, unfolding unpredictably and culminating in immense and shocking scale, expressed through some of 2018's finest performances.

Played Cannes 2018, and became the first Korean film to make the Oscar's Best Foreign Language Film shortlist.
