The Housemaid (2010)

Cannes Film Festival 2010

Palme d'Or
Sang-soo Im

IFC Films
Directed by Sang-soo Im
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

The friendly new maid of a wealthy family becomes sexually involved with her master. The women of the house discover she is pregnant. One of them tries to murder her but she survives. She refuses a pay off to have an abortion, but is slowly being poisoned which leads to the same result. She vows revenge on the family in a final horrific act. Poor CGI at key moments combined with melodramatics and questionable morality make for an unpleasant viewing experience.
