We love this movie. Great story, great acting. We did not expect that kind of ending.
THE TRAILER IS BETTER THAN THE MOVIE--you can SKIP IT if you want good theater and storytelling but see it if you want too much graphic sex and psychopathic stuff. B-movie stuff, close to soap-opera script: Insulting to the intelligence; however, a new movie-goer may be impressed with the explicit even shocking sex....even if you are experienced person. The best character in the movie was Mrs. Choi. She had alll the "true grit"; superb performance; we could have definitely seen more of her...especially if she had adopted the other maid has her daughter and played the game rich mother's advice over poor mother's advice. Something like that. --MO
