  • For the 2nd year in a row at  #CannesFilmFestival, Asian director took #PalmeDOr #GoldenPalm #BestFilm. #Shoplifters by Kore-eda Hirokazu of #Japan last year. "Parasite" or #Gisaengchung by Bong Joon-ho of #SouthKorea now.

Known for "The Host" "Snowpiercer" & "Okja," which used sci-fi to critique capitalism & class divide, Bong adopts social realism with dark satire & noir to flesh out #Parasite. I laughed until my laughter uncomfortably turned to fear, outrage, and then despair as it climaxed into devastating conclusion as if my gut was unexpectedly punched by Manny Pacquiao.

Like "Shoplifters," "Parasite" starts beguilingly simple. Ki-taek (Song Kang-ho), an unemployed man, lives in a squalid basement with his wife, ex-champion shotputter Chung-sook (Chang Hyae-jin), his smart daughter, Ki-jung (Park So-dam), and his cunning son, Ki-woo (Choi Woo-sik). An old schoolfriend helps Ki-woo get a lucrative job as tutor. With fake college diploma created by Ki-jung, he shows up at lavish home of wealthy entrepreneur Mr. Park (Lee Sun-kyun), his delicate wife Yeon-kyo (Cho Yeo-jeong), their teen daughter Da-hye (Jung Ziso), their wacky son Da-song (Jung Hyeon-jun) & loyal maid Moon-gwang (Jeong-eun Lee). The Parks live an uncreased life, save for the slightest wrinkling of the nose when an unpleasant odor — the tang of poverty — assails them.

The Parks like Ki-woo and Da-hye gets a crush on him. Through evil machinations, the whole family, pretending to be complete strangers to each other, gets employed by the Parks: Ki-jung as art tutor of Da-song, Ki-taek as driver, and Chung-sook supplanted Moon-gwang as maid. But little Da-song notices something that the grownups do not (or pretend not to notice for selfish reasons): why do these people smell the same? 
Bong requested reviewers not to reveal the film's latter half. Multiple small twists ramp up the stakes of the class war that leaves no one holding the moral high ground. With watchmaker’s skill, he adroitly keeps the pendulum of my sympathies swinging back & forth between the grasping desperation of the poor & the idle hatefulness of the rich. 5 Stars out of 5 😍🌟😜 #Film #TravelViaFilm #Travel #Backpacking For the 2nd year in a row at  #cannesfilmfestival, Asian director took #palmedor #goldenpalm #bestfilm. #shoplifters by Kore-eda Hirokazu of #japan last year.

  • Of course I included #Cannes in my #CoteDAzur trip! In the 10th century, the town was known as Canua.The name may derive from "canna", a reed. #Canua was probably the site of a small Ligurian port, and later a Roman outpost on #LeSuquet hill, suggested by Roman tombs discovered here. Le Suquet housed an 11th-century tower, which overlooked swamps where the city now stands. Most of the ancient activity, especially protection, was on the #LérinsIslands, and the history of Cannes is closely tied to the history of the islands. The city council had the idea of starting an international film festival shortly before World War II.
