WINNER: PALME D'OR, CANNES 2019
Bong regular Song Kang-ho (The Host, Snowpiercer) plays Ki-taek, whose family of four is close, but hopelessly unemployed. Without prospects, they hustle as best they can to scrape up the money to survive in their subterranean apartment. Hope comes in the form of an unusual offer. The son, Ki-woo, is recommended for a very well-paid tutoring job. Though Ki-woo lacks a university degree, it turns out his sister Ki-jung is a master forger and soon, bearing a fake degree, he is being interviewed at the luxurious home of the very wealthy Park family. With every frame beautifully composed,
Parasite vividly contrasts the two families using humour, mystery and a creeping sense of tension, skillfully fusing genre elements in a wildly entertaining, visually extraordinary and intoxicating manner.
