Plot Outline:

Set in 1930s Korea during the Japanese occupation - Soukee is hired as a new handmaiden to the reclusive heiress, Lady Hideko, who lives her days in a sprawling countyside estate under the domineering eye of her Uncle. But she has an ulterior motive, helping a swindling "count" win the Hideko's heart - and her money. But when Soukee finds herself uncovering feelings for the Lady, the plan changes. -- Chris Kavan

I have been a fan of Chan-wook Park every since seeing the incredible Oldboy. He is adept at adding a lot of layers to his films and The Handmaiden is no exception. Told from two perspectives (the titular Handmaiden and the lady of the house she serves) the movie deftly weaves a tale of greed, jealousy, love and deception and it sizzles with erotic electricity - thanks mainly to the dynamic cast, especially leads Min-hee Kim and Tae-ri Kim. This one smolders with intensity - and if you're not a prude, I highly suggest checking it out.

THE HANDMAIDEN is a twisty and erotically charged period piece with a tantalizing love story, an intriguing mystery, and multi-dimensional characters to boot. They certainly don't make those in Hollywood anymore!
