Elegant, intensely romantic... The visual equivalent of drinking three glasses of champagne in the bath.Time Out
The genius South Korean director Park Chan-Wook (Oldboy) returns to our screens with his latest film, a critically lauded historical erotic epic is a complete feast for the senses. Inspired by the book Fingersmith by Sarah Waters, this version is set in 1930’s Korea following a woman, hired as a handmaiden to a Japanese heiress, but secretly involved in a plot to defraud her.
Using the Victorian crime novel as a loose inspiration, The Handmaiden is another visually sumptuous and absorbingly peculiar outing from director Park Chan-wook.
We’re excited to announce that we'll be screening the Director’s Cut of The Handmaiden for select showings as part of the film's UK TOUR. Running over 20 minutes longer than the regular edition of the film. Find out more here.
