When Bong JoonHo’s black comedy film about two families of different social classes premiered at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, it blew away the jury. “Parasite” won the prestigious Palme d’Or with a unanimous vote. It has since made its theater rounds around the globe receiving glorious reviews from film buffs and simple movie-goers alike. By the end of year, “Parasite” had been considered as one of the best films of 2019 by many critics.
On its road toward the Oscars where it gained 6 nominations, “Parasite” has been gathering awards left and right from film award-giving organizations from around the world including Golden Globe Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards, and British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards. But of all the awards, the Oscars is the most coveted and “Parasite” grabbed four awards: Best Screenplay, Best International Feature Film, Best Director, and Best Picture.
It would be a shame to miss the opportunity to see such an acclaimed film. It was shown in local cinemas October last year. If you still missed out, you’re in luck because Viu is bringing “Parasite” to its Premium Subscribers beginning February 15.
