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.

Best of the year 2017 (40 movies items)

"South Korea produces great films and I was waiting for a release for this so long. Finally got it from UK in the summer and watched it almost immediately. Chan-wook Park is also a great director so expextations were high. And the film delivered. The acting is good and the plot was really interesting. The cinematographer Chung-hoon Chung did such a great job, this was one of the most beautiful looking films I saw this year."

"First viewing - Sept. 1st The Handmaiden hit theatres last year around the time I moved, and as far as I know it didn't screen in Pittsburgh (or if it did that happened before I got here). So it's been a constant source of frustration that I haven't been able to watch it, and knowing that it was waiting for me on Amazon Prime if I ever decided to join their service was probably the biggest reason for me to want to switch. Fortunately it was totally worth the wait, though I feel bad for the film"
