Synopsis


The Handmaiden
Helmed by acclaimed director Park Chan-wook (Oldboy), this period drama set in 1930s Korea explores the relationship between a Korean handmaiden and a Japanese heiress. The handmaiden (Kim Tae-ri) is secretly a pickpocket who is working as part of a scheme to swindle the heiress (Kim Min-hee) out of her fortune, but that plan takes a backseat when the two women begin to fall in love. The Handmaiden was adapted from the novel Fingersmith by Sarah Waters, although the setting was changed from Victorian England to Japanese-occupied Korea., Rovi

    The movie is amazing I went and saw it twice in the theater. The 3 is because Sony really dropped the ball on the dvd. Movie only, no extras at all not even a trailer, and horrid subtitles. In theaters they were color coded for Korean and Japanese, here one color, large and pixely. A very rushed product for such an amazing movie. Hope someone will get both blu-day rights and do this movie justice and give us the extended cut shown in Korea as well.

    Movies like "The Handmaiden" need to be either made more of in the USA or imported from abroad. Give this a try if you like intrigue, suspense, more than enough eroticism and sexuality like Fatal Atraction or Basic Instinct. I have recommended this film to everyone who likes to watch and be transported to another time, another country with a fantastic cast and superb story.

    This movie is visually stunning. It is loosely based on Sarah Water's "Fingersmith".
