Much beauty in this movie, as well as things that weren't so beautiful. Amazingly told story.

It was like watching an intricate web of lies slowly untangle into a mind-blowing yet satisfying conclusion.

Even from the very beginning, you could practically feel the intense attraction between the two female leads. The direction and the actresses were perfect.

Chan Wook Park never fails to deliver that element of surprise on point. So much respect!

The Handmaiden is a perfectly-designed thriller by Korean director Chan-wook Park (Oldboy, I'm a Cyborg But That's OK) set in early 20th-Century Japan-controlled Korea. It presents a grand con game in which a swindler posing as a nobleman places his partner in a household as handmaiden to help him get the hand of a rich heiress in marriage. What no one expects is for the heiress and handmaiden to be erotically drawn together. And then the whole film pivots on a pin's head, and it's a testament to the director's ability and attention to detail that the full story slots into place. And then does so again, turning its game on the audience, and presenting, in the end, a mix of lies, truths, sensuality (and indeed, frank sexuality), and perversion. Perhaps suffering from an over-long epilogue, that slow finish is nevertheless necessary to fulfill its theme of escape, freedom and being true to oneself. It's official, three movies into his filmography, I'll now watch anything Chan-wook Park puts out.

This movie is perfectly shaped as the cinematic techniques conquer the general vibe that is created within the storytelling. Chan-Wook Park enlightens the viewers in a 3 crossed drama as the plots unwhirls and until you ultimately discover the real course of action that takes place in the film.

No masterpiece if you ask me, is on IMDb Top 250 in place #228 when I saw it in June 2019 on SVT Play. But beautiful erotic award-winning Korean / Japanese film in both story, acting & photo.

The director should have asked for help to portray lesbian love. But anyway beautiful art.
