1930s Korea, in the period of Japanese occupation, a new girl (Sook-Hee) is hired as a handmaiden to a Japanese heiress (Lady Hideko) who lives a secluded life on a large countryside estate with her domineering Uncle Kouzuki. But the maid has a secret. She is a pickpocket recruited by a swindler posing as a Japanese Count to help him seduce the Lady to elope with him, rob her of her fortune, and lock her up in a madhouse. Everything seems to be going to plan until Sookee and Lady Hideko discover some unexpected emotions.

  • No english subtitles

    Disappointed, trailer had subtitles, actual movie was Korean Language only. My business travel limit is hello, thank you and good bye! Only cost me a buck so not a big deal financially, just annoying as had the beers chilled ready for good movie night! Cheered up with Kelly's heroes, look forward to watching when iTunes has subtitled version.

    Best film I’ve ever seen and I’m more of the action type of girl but this film has everything. Just don’t watch with your mother or family but other than that enjoy with popcorn and be ready to be breathless. 10 out of 10 (P.s it’s not in English but there are subtitles)

    only rarely these days does a film completely bowl me over, this was beautifully shot, directed and miles ahead of anything I've seen for quite a long time. The less you know before watching the better, another gem from Park Chan-Wook. Astonishing
