Jobless, penniless, and, above all, hopeless, the unmotivated patriarch, Ki-taek, and his equally unambitious family--his supportive wife, Chung-sook; his cynical twentysomething daughter, Ki-jung, and his college-age son, Ki-woo--occupy themselves by working for peanuts in their squalid basement-level apartment. Then, by sheer luck, a lucrative business proposition will pave the way for an ingeniously insidious scheme, as Ki-woo summons up the courage to pose as an English tutor for the teenage daughter of the affluent Park family. Now, the stage seems set for an unceasing winner-take-all class war. How does one get rid of a parasite?

One can find a lot to like in this movie - the cinematography, the scenery, the acting, the plot. The plot, however, is not quite as solid as it is in most Hollywood movies. This was the problem with the plot: the writers did not know what they wanted it to be about. It might have been more intelligible if the writer had talked to other writers and filmmakers who have worked on similar projects, but instead they said "here, I want you to write a movie about three friends who get together to kill a guy." The movie is just too incoherent. It has a confusing first half that is hard to follow. Then it goes into a second half that is full of plot holes and missing connections. What we end up with is a movie that has too much plot and too little logic. A lot of the shots look a bit flat, especially the landscape shots. The background noise, which you normally associate with a movie like this, seems to be thrown in just for the sake of it. And there are moments where the movie seems like it is just showing you one image and then jumping to another. At one point the characters are almost hit by a car and the music is suddenly louder, so the movie is now all about an exploding city. I can see why the movie was a box office hit, but it would have been much more successful had it been intelligently written.

I'm sure many of you know the story, and if you didn't, I'm sure you could find it on this website. After the three guys who all play the same part, come to the realization that the one who is missing, has been killed, they come up with a plan to have the girl he is seeing die in a clever, but thoughtless way. If that wasn't enough, they also need to fake a murder. At the end, one of them decides to use the real murderer, to get the girl he loves back. I say, all three of the guys do a good job in their roles. They all give decent performances. There is a subtlety to the film. I think the film could've done without the third actor, who is quite uninteresting, and the one who is the missing guy, who isn't. I think he should have been replaced by another actor. I liked the ending quite a bit. Not sure if it is supposed to be as ambiguous as the film would like you to think, but I think it was done quite well. The acting is good, and the direction is quite good. A good watch.

This is a Korean movie that I loved. The movie is like a dream, a person who is trapped in a world that is just out of reach. It has a wonderful story that is easy to follow. I really enjoyed the music and how it reminded me of "The Wicker Man". The acting is good, the actors are really good and they are acting in a different way than in the movie. The movie is a good drama that I would recommend to anyone who wants to watch something that is good, different and different. The movie also has a good ending, you would not expect that but it is not a bad ending. I give this movie 8/10.

This movie is an instant classic, and even though it's a B-movie, the cast of actors and actresses all perform very well. The story is about a young girl who is abducted and raped by a mob, and then the real story is revealed. The movie is very dark, and the plot is very complex. I highly recommend this movie.

This is the story of a young man (played by Park Chae-won) who was recently released from prison for robbing a bank. He is now at a party with his friends, drinking and dancing. He then proceeds to rob a bank that was closed for the night, and to steal a briefcase containing a million won. This is the story of how he copes with the fact that he was released from prison for robbery. It is a complex story, and Park Chae-won is a very talented actor. He plays the role of a man who has been released from prison, but is not really happy about it. He finds that he has a strong need for revenge, and will do anything to get it. The rest of the story is about how he tries to find a job, how he is made to deal with the fact that he is not really fit for it, and how he tries to make it work. It is very difficult to find a role that fits the character. If you have seen "Hangover" and you have not seen "The Host" you might want to see this film. If you have seen both of them you will probably have a similar opinion.

This is a really good film. I saw it in the cinema last week and it was a great experience. I like the way the director directed this movie, I think that the whole film is very intense and very interesting. I have to say that the cinematography is great. The whole atmosphere is very dark, and the camera moves a lot. I think that this is a very good movie. The acting is really good. The director, Nana Akhgari, is a very good director. He is a very good director and he knows what he is doing. This is a very good movie. I think that it is a really good movie. I would recommend it to all people. I have to say that the film is very interesting and very good.

I really like how they portrayed the "English guy" as a genuinely funny character. He has a lot of comedy in him and the female characters are all good. There is a scene where he's having a heated argument with a teacher and that's funny because it's not just a guy yelling at a teacher. The female characters are all good and I really enjoyed the character of the Asian woman, who is hilarious in a different way than the other female characters. I thought that the acting was good for the most part, especially for the female characters. The characters were likable and I thought that the director did a good job with the story. I think that this movie is an awesome movie that I think anyone would enjoy. It's about love and friendship and everything that goes along with it. The ending of this movie is also good and it shows a different side of the characters. It shows how different people can be and it shows that sometimes you can't change the world around you. I really liked this movie and I'm going to go out and buy it when it comes out on DVD.
