ODEON says...
Sook-Hee is a pickpocket in 1930s Korea, who’s been assigned to be ‘The Handmaiden’ to Lady Hideko, a fabulously wealthy heiress. Her job: to help her boss steal Hideko’s money. 

Her boss is posing as the Japanese “Count Fujiwara” to seduce Hideko, and Sook-Hee needs to help him win her over. But there’s a powerful, inescapable attraction between the two young women that threatens to derail the plan – and nothing here is what it seems. 

The legendary director of ‘Oldboy’ returns with ‘The Handmaiden’, a lush, ravishing period drama and one of the most acclaimed films of the year.

Waste of money

Reviewer: Young coupleDate: 2017-05-03

I can not believe this film received so many stars.I don't think a single person in the cinema generally enjoyed the film and in fact it feels we watched a cheap porn together. Some parts of story were ok. it ended badly with some cheap scenes.

A true masterpiece. Flawlessly filmed, beautifully acted, precise and wonderful direction. A terrific mystery and a true work of art
