Chung is a patient filmmaker who works in small sequences that accrue imperceptibly into something grander. New York Magazine/Vulture
This small but touching family drama perfectly evokes the times and rural setting. The couple’s struggle is as distressing as it is inspiring. National Newspaper Publishers Association
