LOS ANGELES TIMES
“EXTRAORDINARY… further evidence that South Korea is producing many of the best films in the world”
Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN TIMES
A sexy and stylishly crafted psychological thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat, THE HOUSEMAID (Cannes ‘Palme d’Or’ nominee) tells the tale of one woman’s influence that tears a rich family apart.
Eun-yi (Jeon Do-youn) is hired as a nanny in an opulent mansion owned by the wealthy and handsome businessman Hoon Goh (Lee Jung-jae). He wastes no time in seducing his alluring young employee who seemingly has little choice but to comply with his sexual advances. Soon the vengeful women of the family, including a villainous matriarch and a heavily pregnant wife, plot against Eun-yi who must fight an equally devious battle to protect herself.
Suffused with a highly charged eroticism amidst a series of steamy sex scenes, THE HOUSEMAID is a supremely entertaining and compellingly constructed movie that is one of the most expensive ever made in South Korea. The outlandish, shocking denouement brings to a close an unforgettably enjoyable ride.
DVD bonus features include "The Making of The Housemaid", music video, stills gallery and trailers.
