I really enjoyed this movie (watched it together with my wife, she even rated it 9/10) I think the cinematography/visuals in this movie are incredible and the actors were amazing too, I really fell in love with Min-hie Kim (Lady Hideko) what a perfect doll like face she has-wow!:)

The sky is the limit!

Extreme formalism but has some moemntos and images and parts that trascend it. The sexy pervertion of the characters, leading to the happy somber mutilation, while the lesbian girls are happy, is ok.

" Familiar Actors: None True Rating: 7.8/10 This was directed by legendary vengeance movie director Chan-wook Park whose most notable work is Oldboy. Seo-kyeong Jeong also writes after writing in his other movie Sympathy for Lady Vengeance. This wasn't my favorite of his work though as I don't think he can top Oldboy. Still it is a pretty intriguing story with quite an intricate web of a storyline. I thought the characters were interesting. The actors did a great job with their roles. There a"

"26.6. Elokuvassa on ns. kaikki farssin ainekset, mutta farssiksi elokuva ei kuitenkaan sorru. Jännittävästi ja nokkelasti etenevä jännitysdraama kaikenkaikkiaan."

"06/25/17 Directed by: Chan-wook Park Even more so than Park's previous films, its really, really dumb all the time and much like Spike Lee's "Oldboy" its accidentally funny more often than not. There's also a lot of shots that attempt to impress but for various reasons do not and the editing is piss poor. "

"It's fat erotica. Hideko orders Sook-hee as her chef after months of stress-eating. Sook-hee is fascinated, aroused even, by Hideko's new figure and decides to gain with her. A feud causes them both to exercise, but thanks to the patriarchy they escape together, all plump and happy. Best movie ever."

"You can even curse at me or steal things from me. But please don't lie to me. Understand?"

Set in 1930s Korea, the period of Japanese occupation, a new girl (Sook-Hee) is hired as a handmaiden to a Japanese heiress (Hideko) who lives a secluded life on a large countryside estate with her domineering Uncle (Kouzuki). But the maid has a secret. She is a pickpocket recruited by a swindler posing as a Japanese Count to help him seduce the Lady to elope with him, rob her of her fortune, and lock her up in a madhouse. The plan seems to proceed according to plan until Sook-Hee and Hideko discover some unexpected emotions.
