“★★★★★ … the near-perfection of this competition entry still takes the breath away.”

Donald Clarke, The Irish Times, Cannes Film Festival 2019

Ki-taek is the head of a family of tricksters, who live in a run-down basement flat. By chance, son Ki-woo is recommended to provide private English lessons to the teenage daughter of the wealthy Park household. It isn’t long before Ki-woo has devised a plan to use this opportunity to his family’s best advantage…

Director Bong Joon-ho has described his film as “a comedy without clowns and a tragedy without villains” – to reveal anything more would do the viewer a disservice. On the surface Parasite appears to be a black comedy about class struggle, but as the story shifts quickly to become at turns dark, hilarious and shocking, this glorious Palme d’Or-winner reveals itself to be so much more.
