A lovely film that shows at once a personal and universal story. Funny, warm, heartbreaking, and an interesting way of showing the pressure of the American Dream — and more importantly — its relationship to the male ego.

A case study in how a new perspective can beautifully enliven a familiar tale. A work fascinated by its characters, and always does right by them without glossing over their flaws. Bright, soothing and compassionate - simply lovely.

Three 2020 Best Picture nominees down, five to go. I enjoyed Minari a lot--thoughtfully paced, lushly filmed, with gentle humor and an eye for the characters' humanity always shining through. The grandmother in particular was a delight. My only complaints: the wife is underwritten (like many movie wives, she only seems to exist to create conflict by telling the main male character "No" at all times), and the ending felt forced and a bit rushed.

Very good, throughout it felt like a Henry Ford Western from the 30s or 40s, Grapes of Wrath or similar. 7/10

I get why people like it, I get why it's "good"...but I just found it really slow, boring and uneventful.

Sweet, tender and better than Nomadland.

I wouldn't say it was boring but it kinda felt like a 2-hour John Deere commercial. Not really clear why this was supposed to take place in the 80s, it's not like the era really shone through.
I thoroughly enjoyed the wide lens shots and the music though. All around great acting as well.

Apesar de em alguns momentos a narrativa se tornar cansativa, a premissa do filme é muito boa. Com fotografias lindíssimas e um humor divertido da parte dos personagens da avó e do garotinho. Toca em pontos importantes quando o assunto é sobre a luta de famílias imigrantes.

No story progression, this movie ended up at same place where it started.
Grandmother and Paul characters were ridiculous and made this movie impossible to take seriously, even farcical at times.
Also Monicas character is a true example of a “supportive wife”. :)
spoiler This made this movie even more annoying to watch.
Not Oscar worthy at all and totally agree to boring and uneventful as already mentioned in previous comments.
