Acclaimed South Korean auteur Park Chan-wook (OLD BOY, STOKER, THIRST) directs THE HANDMAIDEN, a visually stunning erotic and twisted love story about a handmaiden and a swindler trying to cheat a lonely heiress from her inheritance.

 

From PARK Chan-wook, the celebrated director of OLDBOY, LADY VENGEANCE and STOKER, comes a ravishing new crime drama. PARK presents a gripping and sensual tale of two women – a young Japanese Lady living on a secluded estate, and a Korean woman who is hired to serve as her new handmaiden, but is secretly plotting with a conman to defraud her of a large inheritance. Inspired by the novel Fingersmith by British author Sarah Waters, THE HANDMAIDEN borrows the most dynamic elements of its source material and combines it with PARK Chan-wook’s singular vision to create an unforgettable viewing experience.

 

Critic Quotes:

“Chan-wook Park’s The Handmaiden is deliciously perverse, delightfully twisty, and unapologetically erotic.” – ReelViews

“The Handmaiden is just pure cinema, a dizzying, disturbing fable of love and betrayal that piles on luxurious imagery, while never losing track of its story’s human core.” – The Atlantic

“You have, I promise, never seen a movie quite like Park Chan-wook’s “The Handmaiden.” – Seattle Times

“Like Park’s best work, it’s an expressionistic, at times surreal movie that skates along the knife-edge of dreams. Every frame pulses with life, sometimes with blood.” – RogerEbert.com

“Elegant, intensely romantic… The visual equivalent of drinking three glasses of champagne in the bath.” – TimeOut

“The love scenes between Sook-hee and Hideko are beautiful, explicit, and funny, displaying a candor about sexuality that’s not intended to shock but to draw you in-it’s the most normal thing about this flamboyant, acerbic film.” – Film Comment

“An emporium of visual delights.” – New York Times

“The best film at Cannes this year.” – Village Voice

“A hugely entertaining thriller.” – The Guardian
