This is a movie so sweet, and so inviting, that what’s most beautiful and complex about it is bound to be ignored by a great many viewers. Yes, it’s an immigrant story. Steven Yeun and Han Ye-ri play immigrant South Korean parents Jacob and Monica Yi, who leave bad prospects in California to take a gamble on land, which father Jacob Yi wants to farm in Arkansas while the family inhabits a trailer. But it’s also a story about a version of precarious working life in America that the Yis, who make a living manually sorting chicklets by sex at a hatchery, have internalized, and become a part of, long before the movie begins. Yes, it’s the “anti-Parasite,” a movie with very little to it at all of either absurdity, cruelty, or irony. But there’s a lot that connect the two. They both give a central role to family, for instance, even if Minari treats the obstacles to that family’s happiness as a quietly immense tragic fate and Parasite finds them funny. When director Lee Isaac Chung and Bong Joon Ho discussed the movie at a Variety magazine event last December, the first thing Bong asked Chung was if Chung’s parents had seen it yet. The question makes more sense the more we see memory album-like scenes inside the Yi family trailer. David, played by Alan Kim, steals the show as the kid under everyone’s heels. But the movie is about much, much more than how sweet and adorable David is, and hopefully those themes—purpose, belonging, illness, work, faith—won’t get lost in the cuteness.
