About the Movie
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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Park Chan-wook is a master of classy trash... There's artistry in his filmmaking, but also a lot of blood, plenty of sick humor and moments of sheer lunacy. The Handmaiden ranks among his best films yet.
Fresh: "The Handmaiden" is 145 minutes of clever, erotic entertainment.
Fresh: Chan-wook Park's The Handmaiden is deliciously perverse, delightfully twisty, and unapologetically erotic.
Fresh: Far too good to be watched in one sitting.
Great Movie! Not for kids.
I loved this movie! It's was really well produced. I heard about from the Cosmopolitan magazine from Snapchat and I'm definitely glad I watched it. However, don't ever let your kids watch it. For sure meant for a 18+ audience.
most underrated film of 2016
I went to see this with no prior knowledge except for remembering the trailer was awesome and I was completely blown away. This is the film that got me into foreign cinema with subtitles. If subtitles are what you are worried about, then give this a try. It will change your mind.
Was looking for something interesting to watch, and wow, did I find it. Twists and Turns and Twists again. Visually, just stunning. Fantastic story telling... Just awesome.
