IU’s Broker was a huge success at Cannes but still received mixed reviews from the audience


Broker is not really well received from the Korean public.

Broker once competed at the Cannes Film Festival 2022. Right at the premiere, the work received a 12-minute standing ovation.

The film earned overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics. Simultaneously, actor Song Kang Ho got the Cannes Best Actor award.

However, the work was not well received by the general audience. After viewing Broker, the majority of spectators are disappointed. They considered the film’s content was confusing and that Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Koreeda’s ambitions were unclear.

The audience found the movie script quite unrealistic. However, many viewers continue to appreciate this work on its uplifting content.


The movie is still garnering mixed reviews from the audiences. However, the majority of spectators are still dissatisfied with this work:

  • When I heard that Broker received 12 minutes of applause at Cannes, I was really looking forward to it.  But after watching the movie, somehow I felt a bit disappointed.  The actors’ acting are all good but sometimes I can’t hear their lines clearly.  I’m an emotional person, but there was only one scene that can touch me 
  • Honestly, I’m a bit disappointed, I think the script is not enough for the cast to show their full potential.
  • I feel sleepy while watching this movie.  It’s disappointing.
