The 2,000-strong audience at the Grand Theatre Lumiere was gripped by the satirical black comedy, giving the director and cast a nine-minute standing ovation when it finished. Hollywood actress Tilda Swinton, a friend of the director who appeared in his films "Snowpiercer" and "Okja," was among those leading the applause. Cast members Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Jo Yeo-jeong, Choi Woo-shik, Park So-dam, Jang Hye-jin and Lee Jung-eun were clearly overwhelmed by the response.

The film revolves around a bizarre encounter between two families from opposite social classes when a son from a poor family scams his way into a tutoring job in a wealthy family. "Parasite" is similar to "Snowpiercer" in Bong's use of starkly contrasting spaces, as well as water and light imagery, to discuss the issue of class. Somewhat disappointingly, the film lacks the symbolic depth that would allow for multiple interpretations, opting instead to have characters explicitly deliver the film's key messages through dialogue. Nonetheless, "Parasite" is nothing less than a masterpiece that escapes being categorized in any one genre with so many twists. A critic for online magazine IndieWire commented, "The giddy, brilliant, and totally unclassifiable 'Parasite' proves that Bong Joon-ho has become a genre unto himself," while British daily the Guardian wrote, "'Parasite' gets its tendrils into you." Of the 21 films in the official competition at Cannes, 15 were unveiled as of Tuesday night, and only a handful of them including "Pain and Glory" by Pedro Almodovar have generated hype despite the inclusion of films by big names like Ken Loach, Jim Jarmusch and Terrence Malick. Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" was screened on the same night as "Parasite" amid much interest, but it seems it was overshadowed by "Parasite." Some critics have pointed out that "Parasite" appeals to Cannes' tendency to favor movies that address social issues. French newspaper Le Monde praised Bong as a filmmaker who, more than a mere stylist, is capable of blending political and social metaphors in his movies. The winners of this year's festival will be announced on Saturday as it closes its run, which started on May 14.
  4. (apologize for not recapping this week, I couldn't see the whole episode, only the last few mins because there are elections in my country) Two things: 1. DM WAS WEARING RYAN'S SHIRT WHEN THEY SLEPT TOGETHER. Something happened. Alright, Something happened but was censored to save the population of fangirls. TAKING THAT HAIR STICK OUT OF THE BUN WAS SO HOT I DIED. How can that small a thing be so sexy? 2. Can I cry because I love Ryan and Deok Mi so much, she's so good for him, she knows how much to push him and how much to love him. RELATIONSHIP GOALS! My sentiment is: Self gloating that doesn't matter because this is a romcom and not a thriller but I called it, the last painting will be of Ryan, Si An knows DM is a fangirl, there will be a car accident - knew it!
  5. In episode 13 (or was it 12), SiAn mentioned that her mom got into an accident way before he was born. She gave birth to him. Sian's mom never mentions his dad/YJ dad...but it's more likely that she re-married and gave birth to SiAn. Sian is not adopted.
  6. Poor Angel Dan. Think he was given all this paperwork slash homework and an alarm for every time she calls him. He's tired from reading thru the paperwork all night when she calls him. My stream is freezing but it seems funny like she's making him do karate and get beat up in front of her. May be she wants to make him strong so he can protect her lol. Think we are getting a montage of scenes. Angel Dan is getting to see how demanding she is with her staff. Like making them pick up a single hair off the floor. Think his voiceover is saying "how am I gonna find this nasty girl love in 100 days" lol I dunno just a guess
  7. https://www.koreaboo.com/news/park-min-young-park-seo-joon-dating-rumor/ have you guys read this article? Is this mistranslation as well? I have read about PPC saying no comment and open to future possibilities but i have also read that they have blatantly denied the dating rumours. oh bless my shipping heart but when i look back at the mont blanc pic i’ll always have hope
  8. who knew self portraits can be so raunchy lol! must be the slow mo's and the "saranghae"
  9. i haven't watched any of the recent episodes with subs .. so i was running away from spoilers here by watching you-tube videos and catching up with this forum am on page 165 right now ... when you tube recommended this video ... PLEASE DON'T WATCH IF YOU DON'T WANT SPOILERS ... or maybe its not a spoiler , am not sure i haven't watched recent episodes with English subs .. i know i haven't been around and i have episode 11, 12 and 13 to go through but when did this air ...???
  10. Long awaited OST (the upbeat pop song that was used during their tour bus date scene + also the ending theme song for episode 14): [그녀의 사생활 OST Part 7] 러니 (RUNY) - Smile Again MV 입니다 TVN is starting to post tonight's clips too...
  11. Gosh i new DM's mother looked guilty about something. She's most likely the lady ryan remembers letting go of his hand at the orphanage. I guess it could be that she left him there after ryans mom didn't return to pick him up.
  12. Guys, I need something else to watch. I feel so directionless. I'm suffering from "What do I do now? Syndrome", especially now after the Game of Thrones finale. Everything I was anticipating this year has ended. Finished Avengers: Endgame, Game of Thrones, Heavenly Sword and Dragon Sabre (both the series AND the novel)... What did I used to do with my life?
  13. Wuri OTP finally confessed "I love you" to each other and slept together Only regret was, why didn't they show Ryan's body??? At least show him in some shirtless action!!! Wheiiii??!! *off to waiting for subs sighhhh*
