Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, this is a black comedy about wealth, greed and class discrimination. Kim Ki-teak’s (Song Kang-ho) family are all unemployed and living in a squalid basement. When his son gets a tutoring job at the lavish home of the Park family, the Kim family’s luck changes. One by one they gradually infiltrate the wealthy Park’s home, attempting to take over their affluent lifestyle. ‘Parasite is best described as a melancholy ghost story, albeit one disguised beneath umpteen layers of superbly designed (and impeccably photographed) generic mutations.’ Mark Kermode.
