The Handmaiden (2016) The Handmaiden (2016) The Handmaiden (2016)

2018/19 Season


S Korea 2016 (18)
144 minutes

Directed by Chan-Wook Park

Ipswich Film Theatre - 7 January 2019 - 7.30pm

Park Chan-Wook’s adaptation of Sarah Waters’ novel Fingersmith is an exquisite period romantic drama which, in its tale of lesbian lovers outwitting their criminal masters adds an erotic twist to Park’s canon of byzantine cruelty and vengeance.

AUDIENCE COMMENTS: Intriguing, erotic, disturbing. Finely paced, beautifully shot. Mesmerising; A bit saucy for film club; Not enough sex. More would have got an A; Too long for me though a good plot. Bit tough on the males; Beautiful imagery and costumes. Interesting plot twists but too soft porn for me.
