The Handmaiden (2016)

Park Chan-wook directed The Handmaiden, a 2016 South Korean sexual psychological thriller film starring Kim Min-hee, Kim Tae-ri, Ha Jung-woo, and Cho Jin-woong. It is based on Welsh writer Sarah Waters' 2002 novel Fingersmith, with the setting moved from Victorian-era Britain to Korea under Japanese colonial control.

Count Fujiwara, a con artist, enlists the help of Sook-hee, a crafty apprentice, to defraud a Japanese princess of her fortune by having her fall in love with him. But, as Lady Hideko's handmaiden, Sook-hee falls in love with her purity and pure beauty, as well as her own sensuality. She concocts a scheme with Hideko to fool Fujiwara, who had previously concocted a scheme with Hideko to deceive Sook. 'The Handmaiden' is a brilliant narrative that is masterfully unraveled in well-structured chapters. Its execution and speed are both spot-on, compelling you to get emotionally involved and experience the actual magic of movies.
