Some excerpts from media reviews:

“The New York Times”: “Broker” is heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time, with a razor-sharp portrayal of “Choose a Family,” with a slick crime storyline that keeps you engrossed but holds the audience’s attention firmly , is one of the best films in this year’s Cannes, with the fascinating and hilarious characters played by the cast led by Kang-ho Song.

“First Showing”: Hirokazu Koreeda yet another beautiful film about family and “why are families so unique”, it would be impossible to be emotional about his films, oh my God (crying). Also a walk through Korean road movie, on the road they talk about forgiveness and mercy, so heartwarming.

The movie also bizarrely touches on anti-abortion/pro-adoption stuff, but I’m not really offended because it’s crafted with a lot of openness and understanding. The magic of Hirokazu Koreeda points to a worthwhile, engaging discussion that cannot be condemned.

“Empire”: I love “Broker”, the typical Hirokazu Koreeda film with laughter and tears, another strange and tender family, but this one is more complex, exploring topics of forgiveness, responsibility, choice, and most importantly It’s a woman’s choice that never feels right no matter what you do, something that a master can master correctly.

“The Irish Times”: The plot is too full, and Hirokazu Koreeda has done the “Odd Family” story before. But “Broker” is still a pleasant melodrama in a low key, with a brutally moving ending.
