A glorious success and smashing box-office hit for Korean auteur Bong Joon-ho, Parasite is a politically charged cinematic wonder. Described by Bong himself as "a comedy without clowns and a tragedy without villains," the film moves quickly from one tone to another, mixing pathos and satire with thrills and drama, in a perfectly controlled blend of many different genres.

 

Ki-taek is a good-for-nothing, unemployed family man, patriarch of a family of grifters — his wife, his clever twenty-something daughter and his son, who live in an overcrowded, sordid basement. The Parks, on the other hand, live in a fabulous house with their teenage daughter Da-hye and terribly spoiled son Da-song, who has suffered a childhood trauma that occasionally causes him seizures and strange behaviour.

When, due to an unexpected stroke of luck, Ki-taek's son is hired by the Parks to be the private English tutor of Da-hye, the destinies of the two families cross. Their explosive meeting exposes the merciless evils of class inequalities, culminating in a powerful and utterly original outcome. Korean with English subtitles. MPAA rated R for language, some violence and sexual content
