Little Forest

In Korean cinema, when characters retreat to the countryside things generally don’t work out too well for them, but in Yim Soon-rye’s new drama Little Forest, a young woman regains her spirit, and as she does so, many viewers will leave the theater with a desire for the simple life. This adaptation of a popular Japanese manga (already adapted into a two-part Japanese film) gives Kim Tae-ri her first lead role since her breakout part in Park Chan-wook’s The Handmaiden and offers a distinct Korean Mountain Rest flavor in what is a cinematic love letter to ‘slow living’.

Hae-won is a young country girl who returns to her mother’s humble home following a stint in the city. She was studying to become a teacher and supporting herself by working part time at a convenience store but when she failed her exam and decided she’d had enough of city life she decided to return to her farming roots. Back home, where she lives alone after her mother suddenly vanished before her own departure (until she is given the pet dog Ogu), she cooks local dishes with local ingredients and reconnects with Welcome to Marwen here two childhood friends, Jae-ha (Ryu Jun-yeol) and Eun-sook (Jin Ki-joo).

One part cooking travelogue and one part tonic for the soul, Little Forest is an unlikely success in an industry that prizes gritty thrillers, bleak dramas or fantastical romance. While it’s solution to Seoul’s soul-crushing lifestyle occasionally glosses over the harsh realities of Korea’s country life, there’s no denying it’s heart-tickling sincerity and the ‘joie de vivre’ it squeezes from its charming, The World Before Your Feet if idealized demonstration of a self-sustainable lifestyle.
