About this movie

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 heartwrenching, Parasite showcases a modern master at the top of his game.

Gran película. Una original y entretenida mezcla varios géneros. Con pequeñas dosis de suspenso que el mismo Alfred Hitchcock aplaudiría. No entra en ningún molde, si bien hace guiños a películas clásicas, me parece muy original. Me hizo olvidarme de la fotografía, de analizar las actuaciones, u otros factores, porqué en cada escena te mete en cada secuencia y en las posibilidades de lo que puede ocurrir. Con algunas imágenes que se van a quedar en mi cabeza por mucho tiempo. Momentos íntimos con mucho significado, como el contacto físico entre la familia, el aroma, la interacción entre las dos familias. El concepto del honor oriental del agradecimiento , aunque sea a expensas de sobras de los demás, llevado al extremo. En momentos parece una sátira, pero se siente tan actual y cercana que llega a incomodar (En el buen sentido). Creo que sí es un reflejo de la desigualdad la sociedad en muchos países, con la que nos podemos sentir identificados.realizar para despejar tu mente? Vale decir que no es para toda la familia, Aunque así lo pareciera en la primera parte, es una película para adolescentes y adultos impactante y nada complaciente. Hablemos cine @jorgeporrasmx

Life immitates art. A deadly game is played, when sycophantic house servants, desire to consume and plague a family, instead of providing, a resource of, domestic services. At the end of the day, when the household sleeps, the servants remain hidden, in back hallways, half empty storage rooms, and basement cellars, instead of vacating. Unwanted, welcomed guests, in the house, force their company, on the homeowners, and refuse to retire, to their own domiciles-even after the family, is displaced.

Really great film. Acting, cinematography is super amazing but my issue with it is that the family of the lower class were being shown to be rather evil. I didn't feel sorry for them that much because the whole idea of the family scamming was way too dramatic. Would of been better if they worked for that family without the lies and then have some other form of conflict to show what the struggle is like for lower class people.
