This black comedy thriller from one of South Korea’s masters of filmmaking takes a hilariously satirical and equally terrifying look at class struggle in the modern world.
The destitute Kim family lives in the basement of an overcrowded block of flats in Seoul. After the son Ki-woo cons his way into becoming an English tutor for the rich Park family, his parents and sister assume other jobs in the affluent household without revealing their familial connections. Living in the Parks’ mansion, the Kims begin to enjoy the comforts and luxuries of life. But when their lie risks being exposed, terrible events start to unfold.
Described by its director as “a comedy with clowns, a tragedy without villains”, Parasite will have you laughing at slapstick and recoiling in terror within a single scene. This genre-defying masterpiece will send you on a roller coaster of surprises, showing you why it is the first non-english speaking film to win the Oscar for Best Picture.
Winner of the Palme d’Or, two BAFTAs, and four Oscars, including Best Picture.
South Korean with English sub-titles.
