Description

Meet the Park family, the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki Woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide "indispensable" luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims' newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. By turns darkly hilarious and heartwrenching, Parasite showcases a modern master at the top of his game.

    The gap between the rich and the poor is nothing new. It can’t be more realistic in its twist of political stereotype: the rich are greedy and the poor are not shrewd. The vertical architectural setting reveals class in this film while the horizontal train does it in his another film about the gap; The Snow Piercer. People who don’t understand the gore end are those who have no heart to resonate the humiliation and agony of seemingly numb father. Yes, ‘smell’ is somewhat people feel shame and abhor from their gut.
  • Weird but entertaining

    I am probably one of the last hold outs to watch this movie, not because it was Korean made, but simply because when watching a movie with subtitles one has to devote 100% attention to every word and detail. When I finally had the time to do so I was blown away! Having watched a few Korean movies with subtitles in the past. I have come away with a great deal of respect and enjoyment for their movie making. Albeit, Last Train to Busan and The Good, The Bad and The Weird are not what you would call Blockbusters, but for the genre types, they were very enjoyable and fun. Parasite simply blew me away with its writing, dialogue, plot and over/undertones. This movie is a keeper, meaning I will purchase for my collection. Funny, Dramatic, a bit scary and brilliantly acted and directed, I have a completely new sense of respect for the Korean cinematic culture and quality. Unless you speak Korean fluently, you have to devote your entire energy and focus on this movie and its dialogue to get the complete effect. Loved It! Congrats on the Academy Awards. Very Miuch ?Deserving.
