Director/Writer: Im Sang-soo

114min    South Korean   English Subtitles   Drama

This slick beast reared its tempting head in the Cannes Competition section luring us in for a potential South Korean treat.  It’s the latest drama from Housemaid director Im Sang-soo and focuses on a super wealthy but dysfunctional family headed by a monstrous workaholic matriarch who runs their crooked business affairs while bedding a young adonis gofer who yearns for her divorced daughter. Sadly its grandiose goings-on and opulent visuals fail to ignite any real excitement or satisfaction beyond the sensationalism. MT

ON GENERAL RELEASE FROM 25 OCTOBER AT CURZON SOHO AND CURZON HOME CINEMA
