A sexy and stylishly crafted psychological thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat, THE HOUSEMAID (Cannes Palme d Or nominee 2010) tells the tale of one woman s influence that tears 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.
