Nora (Lee) and Hae Sung (Yoo) drift apart after Nora’s family emigrates from South Korea to Toronto in Canada in 2000.

Just over a decade later in 2012, they are reunited in New York City - but for just one week only.

Another 12 years pass, with the duo living very different, separate lives but clinging on to the past - however that now looks.

The pair address their feelings and reflect on the choices they have made throughout their lives.

Take a look at an emotional scene from Past Lives below:

The A24 film has seriously impressed the Rotten Tomatoes critics with a score of 96 percent.

Audiences love the one hour and 46 minute flick too, giving it a generous 84 percent rating.

Pallavi Keswani, of The Hindu, wrote: "Lilting between Korean and English, Celine Song’s debut feature Past Lives brings an understated but wholly affecting rumination on the immigrant experience."

Scott Phillips, from Forbes, said: "Past Lives is astute and sharply-observed, emotional without being sentimental.

"It has lived rent-free in my mind since I saw it six months ago.

"It’s not to be missed."

And Valentina Morillo, of El Espanol, said: "It will be remembered as one of the great romantic dramas of the century.

"It is also a personal story about the experience of emigration, about lost ties and the new identity that is built.

"About what is left behind. The past lives."

In an interview with Time magazine, Oppenheimer director Christopher Nolan declared one of his favourite movies in recent years to be Past Lives.

Speaking of the Oscar-nominated film, Nolan said it was 'subtle in a beautiful sort of way'.

The Dark Knight trilogy show-runner said audiences shouldn't expect him to produce that type of film.

He said: "I’m drawn to working at a large scale because I know how fragile the opportunity to marshal those resources is.

Christopher Nolan described the film as 'subtle in a beautiful sort of way'.

"I know that there are so many filmmakers out there in the world who would give their eye teeth to have the resources I put together, and I feel I have the responsibility to use them in the most productive and interesting way.”

Past Lives drops on Netflix UK/IE on 15 February if you want to give it a try.

It's more than likely that you wont regret it.
