DP/30: The Handmaiden, Chan-wook Park, Kim Tae-ri

Chan-Wook Park is a master of intimacy and image and surprise, never more so than with The Handmaiden, a period pot-boiler from a Booker Prize-winning novel that manages to deal with class, gender, sex, greed, lust, and pornography with shocking restraint and unflinching resolve at the same time. This might be the movie Hitchcock would make in an era when sex on screen was an option. Park and one of his two female leads, Kim Tae-ri, talked to David Poland about the film via an excellent translator.
