When the infamous director of OLDBOY helms an erotic period thriller, all bets are off. In Japan-colonised Korea, two thieves pose as a handmaiden and a count to swindle a Japanese heiress out of her fortune and dump her in the madhouse. But nothing proves simple once the maid and the heiress fall madly in lust. Shocking twists and feverish pacing ensure there’s never a dull moment in this lavish bodice-ripper inspired by the novel ‘Fingersmith’ by Sarah Waters. Chicago Film Festival

“With his brilliant mise en scène, Park plays with taboos, genres, and styles to create not only a provocative film, but also a sumptuous feast for the eyes, the mind, and the heart.” TIFF
