Park Chan-wook's lurid lesbian potboiler simmers with sexual tension.The Guardian
We're very excited to be able to screen The Director’s Cut of Park Chan-wook's The Handmaiden for select showings as part of the film's UK Tour.
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 will also be screening the Theatrical Cut of the film. Find out more here.
