User Reviews: Dear movie freaks, watching this Koran movie does not make you die hard Korean fans, so take it easy. This movie becomes popular in my country because the news telling that this movie had won Cannes Palme d’Or 2018. For the very first of the scene, it took us on the daily live of lower class in Korean big city, how they survive, how they are growing up, and how money comes to them. Then the audience will surprise with the originality of the story and will never know the ending. The movie has not plot twist, but still will make you close your eyes in some scenes. I believe all the actors here are very talented theater players, because the words, expressions, and how they interpret the story are so natural, then also will make you laugh in some serious scenes. The title "Parasite" will be understandable if you also concentrate on what the core idea of the Director wants to deliver, about being a family, a partner in crime, group of friends, etc. Even people clap their hands at the ending of the scene. Now my curiosity have been pay off and still I am wondering this movie could be new standard of Asian irony-comedy. Irony because of the originality of idea and comedy because audience can still laugh while Director put them in some critical scenes. Palme d’Or could be a very good step for Director career and also Korean film industry. So congratulation.
