The Housemaid (1960)

  • The Housemaid Slider Image

South Korea | 108 minutes | NR | DCP | Dir. Kim Ki-young

Immensely popular in its home country when it was released, The Housemaid is the thrilling, at times jaw-dropping story of the devastating effect an unstable housemaid has on the domestic cocoon of a bourgeois, morally dubious music teacher, his devoted wife, and their precocious young children. Grim and taut yet perched on the border of the absurd, Kim’s film is an engrossing tale of class warfare and familial disintegration that has been hugely influential on the new generation of South Korean filmmakers. (Criterion Collection, Martin Scorsese's World Cinema Project)  

"That this intensely, even passionately claustrophobic film is known only to the most devoted film lovers in the west is one of the great accidents of film history." - Martin Scorsese
