In this winner of the Best Screenplay at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, and acclaimed as one of the finest films of the year, this finely tuned drama concerns an aging woman who, after a brief doctor visit, decides that her time has come to realize one of her childhood dreams. Faced with the discovery of a heinous family crime and learning she is in the early stages of Alzheimer's, she finds strength and purpose when she enrolls in a poetry class.
"Daring in the ways only quiet, unhurried but finally haunting films have the courage to be. A character study of remarkable subtlety joined to a carefully worked-out plot that fearlessly explores big issues like beauty, truth and mortality, it marks the further emergence of Korean writer-director Lee Chang-dong.'
-Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"The importance of seeing, seeing the world deeply, is at the heart of this quietly devastating, humanistic work from the South Korean filmmaker Lee Chang-dong."
-Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
"A heartrending film, Lee's Poetry is indeed a work of art."
-G. Allen Jphnson, San Francisco Chronicle
