A family tragicomedy depicting the inevitable collision that ensues when the eldest son in a family of four unemployed adults, is introduced to a wealthy family for a well-paid tutoring job.

Ki-taek’s family of four is close, but fully unemployed, with a bleak future ahead of them. The son Ki-woo is recommended by his friend, a student at a prestigious university, for a well-paid tutoring job, spawning hopes of a regular income. Carrying the expectations of all his family, Ki-woo heads to the Park family home for an interview. Arriving at the house of Mr. Park, the owner of a global IT firm, Ki-woo meets Yeon-kyo, the beautiful young lady of the house. But following this first meeting between the two families, an unstoppable string of mishaps lies in wait.

WHAT CRITICS ARE SAYING

“Bong Joon-ho has returned to Cannes with a luxuriously watchable and satirical suspense drama. It runs as purringly smooth as the Mercedes driven by the lead character, played by Korean star Song Kang-ho.” – The Guardian

“The giddy, brilliant, and totally unclassifiable “Parasite” proves that Bong Joon-ho has become a genre unto himself.” – indieWire
