“Parasite gets its tendrils into you.”
★★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“It’s a film that burrows under your skin and sinks in its teeth.”
★★★★
- Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

“This is a dazzling work, gripping from beginning to end, full of big bangs and small wonders.”
★★★★★
- Dave Calhoun, Time Out

“You expect the whole enterprise to come crashing down around his ears, but this is a film-maker in total control of his craft.”
★★★★
- Ed Potton, The Times

“Though we largely root for the Kims, Bong doesn't allow anything as simple as rich versus poor, good versus bad. No wonder this movie speaks to global audiences - it's a parable about our capitalist world.”
★★★★★
- Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, Metro
 
“A film that always has two thoughts in its head at once, a spectacular epic and tightly wound chamber piece, chicly sophisticated, brutal as a hammer.”
★★★★★
- Danny Leigh, Financial Times
 
“Extraordinary.”
★★★★★
- Chris Hunneysett, Daily Mirror


Bong Joon Ho brings his singular mastery home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale.

Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, Parasite showcases a modern master at the top of his game.
