From PARK Chan-wook, the celebrated director of OLDBOY, LADY VENGEANCE, THIRST and STOKER, comes a ravishing new crime drama inspired by the novel ‘FINGERSMITH’ by British author Sarah Waters. Having transposed the story to 1930s-era colonial Korea and Japan, Park presents a gripping and sensual tale of a young Japanese Lady living on a secluded estate, and a Korean woman who is hired to serve as her new handmaiden, but who is secretly involved in a conman’s plot to defraud her of her large inheritance. Powered by remarkable performances from KIM Min-hee (RIGHT NOW, WRONG THEN) as Lady Hideko, HA Jung-woo (THE CHASER) as the conman who calls himself the Count and sensational debut actress KIM Tae-ri as the maid Sookee, THE HANDMAIDEN borrows the most dynamic elements of its source material and combines it with PARK Chan-wook’s singular vision and energy to create an unforgettable viewing experience.
“Expectations are fully met in Park Chan-wook’s exquisitely filmed The Handmaiden (Agassi),an amusingly kinky erotic thriller and love story that brims with delicious surprises.”
– Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
“’The Handmaiden’ is the Korean director Park Chan-wook’s most delectable narrative feature in years. This ornately art-directed erotic puzzler centers around two beautiful women…Over the course of the movie’s three chapters, two of which provide a revelatory, ‘Rashomon’ style shift in perspective, the women will become lovers, rivals and allies, and their teasing, mercurial role play is what gives the movie its seductive pull.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
“This film is simmering with genuine sexual tension. Exquisitely designed and sexually liberating, this is a hugely entertaining thriller.” – Benjamin Lee, The Guardian
