  1. Naoya Kugimiya's rating of the film Secret Sunshine

  2. diiiiogorocha's rating of the film Secret Sunshine

    I've been thinking a lot about death lately, not mine but the death of family members and friends. I really loved the movie, especially Jeon Do-yeon, she's great!

  3. ijgamboa's rating of the film Secret Sunshine

    Buena, buen ritmo, bien pensada, bien hecha.

  4. QNorris9001's rating of the film Secret Sunshine

    There's so many things going on in the span of two hours and it's handled so beautifully.

  5. NCMBianchi's rating of the film Secret Sunshine

    [More like 3.5] Very interesting main characters, and the questions asked by Lee Chang-dong (e.g. regarding pain, the role or religion, and what might drive people to do good or evil...) are challenging.

  7. Northwest Guy's rating of the film Secret Sunshine

    Certainly, Jeon Do-yeon deserves all the kudos and praise she's received for this performance, but the (ubiquitous) Song Kang Ho is brilliant, continuing a long line of successes; he is as great an actor as is working today. This is an exceptional film about a topic most directors should avoid. But Chang-dong, sans melodrama or preaching, intelligently explores death and grieving, masterfully.

  8. Jeff's rating of the film Secret Sunshine

    I can’t believe no one thought to have a person find religion, only to have the person who wronged them find it first. Great idea. Cool movie.

  9. Alexzander Reichley's rating of the film Secret Sunshine

    An unimaginable ordeal for a person to go through, this film does a really good job of displaying the pain, fear, and depression a tragedy can unleash. I found interesting the incorporation of Christianity and the role religion can have in the grief process.

  10. Ben's rating of the film Secret Sunshine

    Fantastic lead performance. An unpredictable and very emotional experience. I saw this 5 or 6 years ago and remember it well. Looking forward to re-watching.

  11. Timbo of Boston's rating of the film Secret Sunshine

    Lee Chang-dong films are like existential mystery stories. I saw a screening of Burning & read the short story on which it is based - Barn Burning by Murakami. Lee’s stories unfold through subtle details and information without judgment and without irony. You can see how he adds layers to Murakami. Lee demands the commitment and judgment of the audience. Tales unfold quietly into explosive unpredictable endings.

  17. Aardsy's rating of the film Secret Sunshine

    How can the heavens be so cruel?

  18. Jenny Coldpussy's rating of the film Secret Sunshine

    Chang Dong is so gracious with his characters and themes—he never judges them. Instead of doing another cynical criticism of religion, he gives us a jarring yet compassionate film that focuses on the ordinary non-saint person in the face of tragedy being seduced by the healing power of faith without even contemplating its overwhelming implications. Truly unforgettable.
