The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden ★★★★½

Absolutely exquisite. Wook's sensual, perverse and often ludicrous tale of love and deceit is as beautiful as it is layered.

The camera moves around almost spiritually making every movement into a smoothe, levitating maneuvere. He also managed to capture the essence of the f/f relationship well and how that co-dependancy can turn into a red hot pool of desire. The pov shots, the long takes and the inherently sexual nature of it all. Just wow.
Intricate and sexy story telling at its best.
