The Handmaiden

The Handmaiden ★★★★½

"Everyone absorbs every story differently."

Every frame in The Handmaiden looks like a portrait. The deprived, women species has been shown to be materialized, sodomized and liberated, all together. It’s a masterful work by Park Chan-Wook, as he puts his audiences in the midst of a large puzzle spread all over the floor. Where they are forced to question every action, feel distressed by some of them & in a very darkly hilarious kind of way, feel greatly amused by them.

Park Chan-Wook’s The Handmaiden is like a sexy threesome. While it gives pleasure & pain in equal measures to all the parties involved, someone or the other is always left gasping & confused. That is until someone takes their hands and shows them the way.
