Extended Trailer: Cannes 2010 Selection “The Housemaid” is a Spicy Affair

30 Apr 2010

Twitchfilm has posted an extended trailer for “The Housemaid,” Im Sang-soon‘s upcoming Korean thriller set to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

A remake of the highly lauded 1960 Korean original, “The Housemaid” stars Jeon Do-yeon, Lee Jung Jae, Seo Woo and Yoon Yeo-jeong. That’s one attractive cast (many of them are talented model actresses). Any English synopsis I could find is short and vague, but perhaps we’re all the better for this:

A wealthy husband has an affair with his housemaid (played by Jeon Do-Yeon). Because of this, the husband will suffer ….

The visuals are soaked in mystery, echoing the precise, atmospheric style of directors like Alfred Hitchcock and his modern Korean equivalent, Bong Joon-ho. My curiosity is aroused (and no, I’m not making some subtle sexual entendre…or am I?).

The film is due out July 2, 2010. See the unsubbed trailer below. If any Korean web-surfers could offer some translation or point me to a subtitled version, please let me know:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Is this the real deal, or just another pretentious ero-drama failure? Post your thoughts below.
