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.

"29/7/17 Stunning drama in which a petty thief is forced by a con-man, to be the handmaiden to a young woman who lives with her wealthy and eccentric uncle, in order for the con man to marry her and inherit their money. Park Chan-wook's delicious looking film uses voyeurism to convey its twisting storyline, while at the same time being gripping and extremely erotic. Beautiful."

BAMF's June 2017 Cinejourney (43 movies items)

" 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."

Look out world, its 2017 and I'm watching movies! (164 movies items)

"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. "
