Parasite (2019)

Drama, Crime, Suspense, Thriller 2h 11m

Aroview: An unemployed family with a bleak future systematically ingratiate themselves into the lives of a wealthy family in this brilliant, blood-splattered social satire from the endlessly inventive director Bong Joon-ho (THE HOST, SNOWPIERCER).

Ki-taek’s family of four is close, but all are unemployed and the future looks bleak. However, when the son, Ki-woo is recommended by a fellow university student friend for a well-paid tutoring job, hope spawns for a regular income. But very soon, following this first meeting between the two families, an unstoppable string of mishaps lies in wait.

Winner of the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the first non-English language film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture, along with Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Feature Film.

“Bong delivers a stunning return to form with this newest venture, which takes bold leaps between tenors and tone, but holds together beautifully thanks to the director’s unparalleled visual/spatial sophistication, and his unsparing social indictment.” ~ Ben Croll, TheWrap.
