Top 10 Korean Films of 2014

4. A Midsummer's Fantasia

Jang Kun-jae returned with his third feature in 2014, the Korea-Japan co-production A Midsummer’s Fantasia, which was commissioned by and shot near Kawase Naomi’s Nara International Film Festival. Much like his previous film Sleepless Night (my top pick of 2012), Jang’s latest is slow-moving and tinged by a light, bittersweet touch. Personal, introspective and surprisingly beautiful, Jang once again delivers an unassuming work that softly weaves its way around your heart.

As if Sleepless Night wasn’t proof enough, the serene A Midsummer’s Fantasia cements Jang as one of the top Korean directors working today.
