After its extraordinary success in Cannes and at the Oscars, Golden Globes, BAFTAs, Independent Spirit Awards, and, we could go on, Bong Joon Ho’s brilliant Palme d’Or-winner returns to Curzon in this special black-and-white version. The transfer was done by director Bong and offers the lustrous contrasts of monochrome.
The Kims are living a marginal life when their son fakes his way into becoming the English tutor for the ultra-wealthy Park family. Soon all four of the family members have roles in their hyper-stylish modern home, having used every dirty trick in the book. But the house hides secrets that are way outside the Kim's scheme.
Parasite is what happens when the have-nots have their day. A deliciously fun poisoned cocktail of dark humour, social satire and perfect set pieces, this gripping thriller is a sensational experience that keeps surprising to its last drop.
The original full-colour version of Parasite is also screening at Curzon Cinemas:
