The Handmaiden


Rating: 3/5

From IMDB:

A woman is hired as a handmaiden to a Japanese heiress, but secretly she is involved in a plot to defraud her.


The photography in this movie is absolutely stunning. The landscapes are amazing and so are the indoor shots. The manipulation of colour is done masterfully as well.

But other than that I had trouble finding any substance to the film. I enjoyed some scenes, the interaction between actors, but most of them did not feel real so I didn’t really take anything from it.

There are several slow parts where scenes are replayed from a different perspective and it’s mostly interesting for the sexual discovery the characters partake. Actually, there is not much to it other than the sex.

It was okay, different from what I usually watch, but I was expecting something more special, especially after watching such an amazing trailer.
