The less you know about Parasite in advance, the better. Bong Joon-ho’s film is at its best when you let it surprise you and shock you over and over again. Parasite is a strange trip, fully unpredictable and difficult to categorize, completely unique and impossible to explain.
Hailed as the best movie of the year, Parasite has won Palme d’Or at Cannes and the best foreign language film award both at Golden Globe Awards and The British Academy Film Awards. It made history as a foreign language film winning four Oscars including the best picture.
Ki-taek’s family of four is close, but fully unemployed, with a bleak future ahead of them. The son Ki-woo is recommended by his friend, a student at a prestigious university, for a well-paid tutoring job, spawning hopes of a regular income. Carrying the expectations of all his family, Ki-woo heads to the Park family home for an interview. Arriving at the house of Mr. Park, the owner of a global IT firm, Ki-woo meets Yeon-kyo, the beautiful young lady of the house. But following this first meeting between the two families, an unstoppable string of mishaps lies in wait.(Sulje)

Ask something peachy from our bartender. Peaches are the thing to have with this movie. We won't say anything more, but you'll understand when you watch the film.
