Synopsis

Winner of a historic four Academy Awards® including Best Picture and Best Director, and the Palme d’Or (Best Film award) at the Cannes Film Festival – this family tragicomedy is the latest masterpiece from Bong Joon-Ho. PARASITE confirms his position as one of the world’s most inventive and captivating filmmakers.

Ki-taek's family of four is close, but all are unemployed and the future looks bleak. However, when the son, Ki-woo is recommended by a fellow university student friend for a well-paid tutoring job, hope spawns for a regular income. Carrying the expectations of the family, Ki-woo arrives at the house of Mr. Park, the owner of a global IT firm, where he meets Yeon-kyo, the young lady of the house. The job interview is a success and soon Ki-woo begins work. But very soon, following this first meeting between the two families, an unstoppable string of mishaps lies in wait…

Reviews


"A nerve-racking masterpiece whose spell lingers long after its haunting final image."

- Vulture



"The social commentary is almost as powerful as the plot itself."

- BBC



"Giddy one moment, unbearably tense the next, and always so entertaining and fine-tuned that you don’t even notice when it’s changing gears, “Parasite” takes all of the beats you expect to find in a Bong film and shrinks them down with clockwork precision."

- IndieWire
