WINNER: Palme d'Or, Cannes Film Festival
OFFICIAL SELECTION: Cannes Film Festival, San Sebastian International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival

Ki-taek is a good-for-nothing, unemployed family man, patriarch of a family of derelicts - his wife Chung, his clever twenty-something daughter Ki-jung, and his son Ki-woo - who live in an overcrowded, sordid basement. The Parks, on the other hand, live in a fabulous house with their teenager daughter Da-hye and terribly spoiled son Da-song, who has suffered a childhood trauma that occasionally causes him seizures and strange behaviors. When, due to an unexpected stroke of luck, Ki-wood is hired by the Parks to be a private English tutor of Da-hye, the destinies of the two families cross. Their explosive meeting exposed the merciless evils of class inequalities, culminating in a powerful and utterly original outcome.
