This remarkable film sees a family of have-nots insinuate themselves into a wealthy family’s elegant mansion, whose very structure conceals secrets and illustrates the brutality of the class divide.
At its heart it is a seriocomic microcosm of South Korean attitudes and mores that also delivers a globally resonant portrait of social anxieties in the era of late capitalism, as errant son Kiwoo squares up to his desperation head-on. Not for him the quotidian uncertainties of the gig economy, which has his younger sister and parents in its grip. There is a way out of their cluttered, seedy, semi-basement apartment, with its view of drunks urinating in the street above. It just takes a little honest dishonesty.
It made history for being the first foreign language film to win the Best Picture Oscar in 2019, as well as Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best International Film.
