Little Forest

As life in the big city gets too much, Hye-won (Kim Tae-ri, The Handmaiden) escapes to her rural childhood home and is reunited with fresh ingredients and old friends.

Adapted from Daisuke Igarashi’s 2002 manga series, Yim Soon-rye’s film comes with the barest outline of a love triangle, but is mostly content to observe Hye-won slowly restoring both herself – and the viewer – with a gentle routine of good food and friendship. With its heavy focus on cooking and eating, Little Forest will have you feeling hungry too.
