The Handmaiden is a 2016 South Korean eroticpsychological thriller film directed by Park Chan-wook and starring Kim Min-hee, Ha Jung-woo and Kim Tae-ri. It is adapted from the novel Fingersmith by Welsh writer Sarah Waters, with the setting changed from the Victorian era to Korea under Japanese colonial rule. The film was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. In Japan-occupied Korea, a conman operating under the false title of Count Fujiwara hires a pickpocket named Sook-Hee from a family of con artists to become the maid of the mysterious heiress Lady Hideko, whom Fujiwara plans to marry and have committed to an asylum in order to steal her inheritance. Sook-Hee, taking on the name “Tamako”, enters Hideko’s household, which is controlled by her authoritarian Uncle Kouzuki, a collector of antique erotica. Kouzuki forces Hideko to perform readings of his erotica (which are then auctioned off) for aristocratic guests. Hideko’s aunt performed the readings before her, and eventually killed herself to escape her husband’s abuse.
