Based on Sarah Waters' novel Fingersmith, this sumptuous erotic thriller relocates this gripping tale of sex, duplicity and madness from Victorian-era Britain to 1930s Japanese-occupied Korea. Pickpocket Sook-hee has been hired by a con-man to serve as a new handmaiden for fragile heiress Lady Hideko, whose fortune the pair plan to steal. However, the plan gets complicated when the pair begin to fall for one another - leading to plot twists that move almost as fast as its characters shift sexual allegiances...Visually ravishing and undeniably seductive, this is an erotic original crime revenge story that will leave you breathless for more.

Dir. Chan-wook Park, South Korea, 2017, 144 mins, subtitled.
Cast. Min-hee Kim, Jung-wo Ha, Jin-woong Jo.
