This brilliant, blackly-comic thriller won the Palme d'Or at Cannes – the first South Korean film to do so.

It is the tale of two families from different ends of the social spectrum. The Kims eke out a living using their wits whilst the Parks enjoy a lifestyle of luxury. As the Kims infiltrate their way in to every aspect of the Park's life it seems that their luck is finally about to change. That is until...

Full of energy, verve and wit, Parasite is incredibly watchable but also brims with rage at society's inequalities.

Thanks to Curzon
