Park Chan-wook directs Kim Min-hee, Kim Tae-ri and Ha Jung-woo in this erotic thriller that transplants the plot of Sarah Waters’ Victorian lesbian servant noir, Fingersmith, to Japanese occupied Korea.
The Oldboy director blends his masterfully crafted cinematic vision and his cheeky sense of farce to create his warmest work yet. The twisting plot knots in and out of itself with athletic grace. The brilliant sex scenes, both metaphorical and explicit, are loaded with charm, power and narrative drive. And the two female leads naturally befriend you while never proving utterly trustworthy. A big, dirty, intelligent, gorgeous romp.
