Most of the films that are visually stunning like PARK CHAN-WOOK'S THE HANDMAIDEN (2016.) are not inexpensive to produce, so it is an extraordinary feat to have made this incredible looking film for just nine million dollars. The Korean film is the adaptation of Fingermith, a British novel by the writer Sarah Waters.
The situation is very familiar, two completely opposite souls find each other one day and begin a turbulent relationship based on raw, sweaty, animalistic sex. They don't try to understand each other or learn about each other's names for that matter, no, the sole point of their relationship is to enjoy the feeling they experience when hitting the sack.
