Director: Park Chan-wook. South Korea 2016. 154 mins
From the mind of Park Chan-wook, the director of the unforgettable cult-classic Oldboy, comes his latest mysterious psychodrama.
Set in 1930s South Korea and Japan, the story revolves around four people: a noble lady who has inherited a fortune, a swindler count who is after the noble lady’s fortune, a young female pickpocket hired by the swindler count and the noble lady’s uncle who is her guardian.
Inspired by Sarah Waters’s 2002 crime novel Fingersmith, set in Victorian Era Britain, The Handmaiden is a playfully provocative tale dripping with seduction, desire and deceit. This is your chance to see the film that made it into over thirty top-10 lists by film critics worldwide, from a director and writer still at the very top of his game.
