South Korea, 2010

Run Time: 139 minutes, Certificate: 12A,

One of the best films in 2010, this beautifully acted Korean film is a deeply moving tale that brings a lump to the throat.

For cinema goer's who appreciate that there's a world of cinema out there, this low-key South Korean drama is a little gem.

"A Korean movie about an aging housemaid that turns out to be one of the best films of the year."

"What makes Poetry so involving is that it's never clear how the story will be resolved."

"Like the flowing waters in its opening shot, Poetry is a beautiful film that carries us along slowly, subtly, yet unrelentingly."
