Enjoyable but disjointed. Nice premise, 2 great leads and nicely supported by Riz Ahmed. But in the end there are too many "that would never happens".
Once in a while, a film will make you shake yourself down, and it will take hours maybe even a couple of days to get your real self back. This is one of them.
From the very first minutes, Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams and the rest of the cast just transport you into their world. So much so that you feel like you're sitting in the corner of the room just watching them go about their daily business.
Park Can Wook is in a class of his own. One of the Directors that you just have to see whatever he puts out, because the chances are it's going to be at least "very good".
The Handmaiden is beautiful, erotic, captivating, naughty, perverse, thrilling, tense, twisted and brilliant.
For anybody who likes mindfuck cinema it's a great great film. For anyone who likes Park Chan Wook - it's bliss.
