Parasite is a rare and unique cinematic experience. It is a Korean film directed by Bong Joon Ho, who wore the same hat in films such as Snowpiercer, Okja or Memories of Murder. All these have very high marks in common on IMDB.
Here is the trailer!
The film has 6 nominations for the Oscars, among which for the best film and director, it won the best foreign film at the Golden Globes, it has 4 nominations for the BAFTA awards and, besides all this, it is nominated in another 88 festivals. international film.
Is it as good as everyone praises it? My answer is: it depends. First of all, we all know that people’s tastes differ. Others may think that Dumb & Dumber is a better movie than this one, so we need to address those with a refined film culture. I’m not saying it’s not for everyone, but you won’t be glued to the screen without breathing.
I can not say about the premise of the film, because that would mean giving spoilers. What I can say though is about the brilliant director and the script executed with mastery. Each frame is thought up to the smallest detail and after we are presented with some of the intrigue at the beginning, the tension begins to increase until the end that will move you
As a viewer, you have to be patient. It is not full of action, the drama is set on a low fire, but the end result is worth every “long” second. It is a film based on the story and not on the special effects, the oddities come in line and are more and more intense as the story goes. Everything is wrapped up in world-class cinema. That is, how it is filmed and how everything is staged deserves a thorough analysis for movie lovers. At least one montage from the movie is made so cleverly that it has videos on YouTube about how fantastic it is.
Parasite is definitely an impact film that you will not forget too soon and when you hear the question: “Do you know a good movie?”, Surely the answer will be Parasite.
What do you think? It is a nominee for Oscars this year, so….
