My views 

This pic is from critically acclaimed manager of Oldboy as well as Thirst as well as non merely roughly other honey story related to vampires or anything. ‘The Handmaiden’ is merely pure cinema,  disturbing fable of love, a dizzying as well as disloyalty that overloads the viewer amongst opulent imagery, spell never losing rail of the tragic, human heart of its story. Set inward the 1930’s Japanese occupied Korea, it’s a story of a immature woman individual pickpocket (Kim Tae-ri) who becomes a handmaiden to a beautiful Japanese heiress (). However, she must handle to convince the heiress to hook upward amongst a conman (Jung-woo Ha) who poses every bit a count, for which she volition larn a risk for a ameliorate life. She gets into a moral dilemma when she starts developing feelings for the heiress. The Handmaiden is a elation on every level. The pic is divided into 3 chapters, all giving dissimilar outlook. It offers a few surprises along the agency every bit well. Visually, it’s a please for the eyes. The term “every frame a painting” gets overused, but it actually fits here.  The 3 leads all gave terrific performances. Musical marking past times Yeong-wook evokes, or ameliorate said, escalate the emotions as well as the suspenseful tone. Despite the cinema move fourth dimension of two hours as well as 24 minutes, it never gets dull, it’s real evenly paced throughout. It is a unique pic that you lot tin watch. It is sensuously lavish, occasionally perverse, ghastly powerful as well as frankly sexual. Park Chan-Wook has reached a novel meridian amongst this pic – which is, to move honest, pure seduction.
