Top Korean Films of 2011

5. Re-encounter

One of the most talked about independent films of the year, Re-encounter is a complex film which explores modern connotations of the family unit and even goes so far as to question the definition of the word.  Min yong-geun's second film demonstrate the director's commanding but very subtle grasp of the utility of film technique and narrative construction.  It is at times harrowing but also eminently watchable, a difficult balance to achieve.  What's more, Re-encounter features one of the year's best lead performance from Yoo Da-in who will likely become a big name in the industry in the coming years.  A wonderful film from Korea's thriving independent filmmaking scene.
