THE HANDMAIDEN (2016)

The Handmaiden

 Mademoiselle AKA The Handmaiden is an erotic thriller made by Korean director Park Chan-wook in 2016. Many of you would be familiar with Park Chan-wook from his award-winning  2003 film Oldboy. The Handmaiden can be summed up as an erotic thriller that is set during the Japanese occupation of Korea in the early 1900s. The movie starts with the con man approaching a Korean woman with a heritage of stealing to play as a handmaiden for a young Japanese lady.

The thriller follows the duo trying to con the young Japanese lady and defraud her out of her inheritance. The movie is divided into chapters each dedicated to depicting the past of the characters in the trademark Park Chan-wook style. Here Park Chan-wook is trying to best his work in OLDBOY and archives that in many ways. The film captures the innocence and beauty of the characters secluded in an estate in 1900.

Personally, the movie doesn’t overtake the 2003 film Oldboy in terms of intensity and action but still stands on its right next to his greatest work.
