Movie Info

Set against the backdrop of a rapidly expanding Seoul in 1994, a lonely 14-year-old Eun-hee moves through life like a hummingbird searching for a taste of sweetness wherever she may find it. Deprived of attention from her family, she roams the neighborhood with her best friend, attempts romantic relationships with both girls and boys alike and is sent to the hospital with an unclear diagnosis. When Young-ji, a new teacher, arrives, she becomes the first adult Eun-hee feels really understands her.

Critic Reviews for House of Hummingbird (Beolsae)

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (11)

  • Altogether this is a powerfully constructed and slickly developed debut feature, and marks Kim Bora as a director with a world of potential.

    August 9, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
  • Bora certainly knows the nuances of her subject inwards and out and makes sure that we know there is no hero or villain, simply a family trying to find its way around each other.

    August 6, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Bora Kim's debut film is one of the most exciting discoveries of this year's Fantasia International Film Festival, a tender and moving coming of age drama above reproach

    July 29, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A deft and affecting coming-of-age drama

    July 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • House of Hummingbird digs deep beneath the shine and luster of the rapidly industrializing Seoul of the '90s and instead focuses on the cracks that were beginning to form under the surface.

    May 17, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
  • Kim's film is a compassionate piece on interpersonal connection that'll touch your heart when it's at its most vulnerable.
