Winner of the Palme d’Or

From the director whose films rank amongst the highest grossing in South Korea comes a black family comedy (of sorts) about a wealthy Korean family in a modern-day Downton Abbey upstairs-downstairs situation.

Bong Joon-ho’s 2019 Palme d’Or winner tells the story of two families: the Kims and the Parks. The Kims are an impoverished family living in squalor, but they are resourceful. When opportunity strikes, they seize it - and never let go.

After a family friend decides to move to the United States, he encourages Ki-woo (Choi Woo-shik, Okja) to replace him as a tutor to the daughter of the wealthy Park family. Ki-woo is unqualified for the job,but forges the credentials he needs with the help of his sister Ki-jung (Park So-dam).

One by one, each member of the Kim family finds their way into servitude to the Parks - without the Parks discovering who they really are. “Rich people are naive,” remarks the patriarch of the Kim family. The Parks are the source of survival for the Kims now. There is only one family member left to onboard: Kim matriarch Chung-Sook (Chang Hyae-jin).

The film travels through genres seamlessly to tell a story about greed and social disparity that is tragic (or maybe comedic) on a Shakespearean scale.

“A luxuriously watchable and satirical suspense drama.”
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
