I believe that they were willing to work, willing to do whatever it took to keep food on the table and get a shot at living somewhere other than the basement where drunks pee right outside the window. I believe this to a a reductionist view of much of how the scene was set up. One minute we're watching some great tap-dancing, the next we're witnessing a mob of war-weary villagers beating an innocent woman. This movie is probably the one I’ve liked the least on first viewing. Happens every year and the reasons are usually very superficial (Mad Max, La La Land, Dunkirk, etc.). He sneaks out of the house by the skin of his toes, and travels barefoot through torrential rain from the height of luxury he may never enjoy again to the literal bottom of society, only to find that his home is not only flooded, but drowning in sewage. I was lucky enough to go into this movie blind, and as a result I had no preconceptions about the film discussing class as a premise. The goal is to shock not to create real art. A battered woman shows up to take care of a husband trying to escape death due to debts, and the family's reaction is to push them into the basement so that they may remain a step higher on the social staircase. Beautiful and inspiring cinematography. I am Asian. Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy. The main criticisms I found are that 1. the ending made very little sense, in particular Kim Ki-taek's decision to stab Park Dong-ik, 2. that the class conscious message was tainted because our poor family is not virtuous and our rich family is not irredeemable, and 3. that the characters were poorly constructed, the rich being too naive to actually represent real rich people and the poor being too cunning given their initial seeming incompetence.

In a world where for me to have, someone else has to go without, those willing to take will win. I understand the circumstances leading up to the decision for Kim to stab Park, the most convincing in my mind is the trauma of the flood and losing everything in the midst of being treated as a inhumane cog in Park’s life while essentially being spit on (by the act of Park plugging his nose when he went to get the keys). Weird bad overacting, overhyped, cheesy and predictable story. A man steals a thousand dollars from a business and uses it to put a roof over his family's head for another month. I tried to avoid it. And that is reinforced in some ways by her reaction to Moon-gwang's pleading.

I have no faith that anyone will be persuaded to change their opinion, but do feel the need to put my two cents into the mix. Humorous first half turns violent and disgusting. And the Park family aren't bad guys. He is told that the money he is being paid means that he is not really allowed to have an opinion, or to analyze a situation. This globally successful blockbuster proves that the entire world is hungry for a clever critique of social issues, especially surrounding the class … I see the immoral actions of the Kim family to be a critique on social divide, but remember that they aren't to good guys.

His wife is currently being attacked by a madman, threatening to stab her in front of everyone. Kim Ki-taek is a full character, and his motivation for that moment begins well before hand, based on the concept of "crossing the line".

Then the guy in the bunker shows up and I couldn't stop laughing 'cause it seemed like a super villain arriving suddenly in a very silly fashion. [I had previously written a negative review of Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer (2014).] Far from a masterpiece. Bong Joon Ho brings his work home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale.

One of the first line items was a second full time job, as though working 80 hours a week, almost half the hours you spend alive every seven days, is just to be accepted. The decisions made sense, the ambiguity reflected the messy world we inhabit, and neither the rich nor the poor were portrayed as too smart or stupid for their position in society.

I was loving it until the last 30 minutes but now I do appreciate the ending the way it was ! That the Kim family explicitly harms people in search of money is not to praise them, but to point of that a system where my well being is based on your suffering is a system that hurts people.
