“Minari” oddly neglects curiosity and marvel, fantasy and terror. The strongest moments within the film are the few that evoke the anxious shadows of David’s view. One day, he overhears his mom explaining to his grandmother that he’s at risk of dying.

That night time, earlier than going to sleep as typical, within the mattress subsequent to his grandmother’s, he asks whether or not he’s going to die, and he or she dismisses the fretful prayers and rites with which his mom has raised him as silly.

(When she tells him to cease worrying about Heaven, he asks, “But what if I’m going to Hell?”) They’re the scenes that come closest to suggesting the mix of gravity and innocence, of worry and the worry of its expression, that makes the kid’s inside life deep and unusual and singular.

Elsewhere, Chung’s teeming recollections and extrapolations are muted by the reductive conventionality of their depiction. Minari’s type is a disheartening instance of the gravitational pull that such conventions exert on the cinema at massive.
