Parasite

Panorama | Special Presentations

South Korean master filmmaker Bong Joon Ho (The Host, Memories of Murder) delivers an unpredictable comic suspense thriller with his Palme d’Or-winning film, Parasite. The Kims, a poor family of four, reside in a cramped basement apartment where they struggle to make ends meet, stealing nearby Wi-Fi signals and folding pizza boxes for a delivery joint to make money under the table. Sick of their underclass existence, they set their sights on the Parks, a rich family looking for an English tutor for their teenaged daughter. The crafty Kims plot and scheme, and soon infiltrate the affluent home one-by-one, each of them manipulating their way into household gigs without the Parks realizing that they’re related. However, once they’re settled in, things don’t go according to plan, and simmering class tensions are not so easily suppressed.

Bong contrasts and skewers these two family units while casting a critical gaze at the system that pits them against one another. Darkly funny and palpably urgent, Parasite is a universal tale of economic disparity, social polarization, and human desperation that does not fit conveniently into any one simple category: it is a satire, tragedy, and allegory all at once and not least a supreme entertainment.
