The Housemaid (DVD)
A husband's affair with the family housemaid has dark consequences in this erotic drama of privilege and power from South Korea.
A sexy and stylishly crafted psychological thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat, The Housemaid was nominated for the Cannes Palme d Or 2010.
It tells the tale of how one woman's influence could tear 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.
