If the ‘Parasite’ film was too good that it needs to hit the encore button again, here’s a treat for all. The black-and-white version of the critically acclaimed film is hitting the South Korean theatres on 29 April 2020 and the online platforms in Asia in May 2020—which means, we can all watch it in the comfort and safety of our homes during this extended Circuit Breaker. Yet another stay home activity for the masses!
Though the plot and cast remain the same, this colour swap is sure to give the film a different feel and makes the riveting plot more intense. Moreover, the lack of colours gives a magical touch to the renowned film—while adding an elegant touch to the Park’s colossal posh house, it also shows the destitute living conditions of the Kim’s—especially during the flood scene. Therefore, it highlights the vivid contrasts of the socioeconomic reality that the filmmaker intended.
Meanwhile, while we are waiting for the black-and-white version to be out, CJ Entertainment—the film’s distributor—has released stills and trailers for our viewing pleasure.
At the end of the viewing, it can be a table-zoom conversation topic with your family and friends by comparing and sharing your experiences of both the coloured and monochrome redactions.
Not sure about you but I have very high hopes for this multiple Oscar award-winning star and all-ready to keep my eyes peeled for it.
