Summary

Joon-ho Bong is a famous Korean director and is known for slightly quirky films. He looks at films like Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho and incorporates some of those techniques in his movies. It's a well-told story across two different classes of families in Seoul. There are many twists and turns during the movie.
