2007 Cannes Best Actress winner JEON Do-youn teams up with renowned director Im Sang-soo for this suspense-laden remake based on late director Kim Ki-young’s 1960 original, The Housemaid, long considered a classic in Korean cinema. A digitally re-mastered version of Kim’s film was screened at Cannes in 2008.
Im Sang-soo’s The Housemaid follows the story of Eun-yi, a middle-aged divorcee forced through circumstance to takes a position as a housemaid with an upper class family. It is not long before her master, Hoon, takes advantage of his social position by sharing her bed.
When Eun-yi becomes pregnant and her secret is discovered by the family, she is compelled to have an abortion. Her forced termination turns Eun-yi’s already fragile mental condition for the worse and she decides to take matters into her own hands.
Director Im Sang-soo previously directed the Cannes selected The President’s Last Bang (Director’s Fortnight, 2005) and the Venice selected A Good Lawyer’s Wife (2003). Actress Jeon Do-youn won the Best Actress award at Cannes in 2007 for her hailed performance in Lee Chang-dong’s Secret Sunshine.

The buzz on this film is ringing out loud. A remake of the original film by Kim Ki-young, widely considered one of the top Korean films of all time, this updated version by Im Sang- soo is a lot more revealing and explicit in nature for the modern audience probably sensitized to it, being one of the films selected for competition at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and its two limited screenings during our Korean Film Festival were one of the earliest to have sold out. Needless to say it makes good sense for a commercial release here. The premise is simple, where Eun-yi (Jeon Do-yeon) got invited by Byung-sik (Yun Yeo-Jong) to serve in an uber-rich household made up of three members – the master of the house Hoon (Lee Jung-jae), his very pregnant wife Haera (Seo Woo) expecting a pair of twins due anytime soon and hence the need for an extra help around the house, and their daughter Nami (Ahn Seo-hyeon) with whom Eun-yi forms a strong friendship with, since a child is non-judgemental on someone’s background and social standing. As much as most would like Eun-yi, a divorcée, to enter the household and see an opportunity to seduce Hoon, this is not that movie, and neither was that the motivation at all. We see the fairly impoverished background that Eun-yi came from, and living amongst the rich and powerful provided a chance to live the high life, since the family is extremely wasteful. With Byung-sik showing her the ropes necessary to do her job, from the bowing to the serving, the cleaning and being at the beck and call of the household members, the hardship probably is well worth it for the perks that come with the job, ones that are beyond the reach of ordinary folks. So when things turn, you’ll find yourself wondering the exact motivation she allowed herself to open up (pardon the pun) to the come hither of the master of the house, who has a penchant for alcohol and being brought up with a silver spoon, there’s no such thing as a No to any of his request, although on the outside he may be that rich gentleman, it’s not far- fetched to think that these folks would consider money as the basis for all things going their way, and money being the basis to bail themselves out of trouble, and to keep the mouth of others shut. Money as the root of all evil, probably couldn’t be more true here if those with the means decide to abuse it, given the mindset of theirs that they can always get away from the blame game. But what’s more engaging in the film is the power play amongst the characters, who are well, mostly female, fawning over the attention, the riches and the ability of what the man in their life can offer. There’s Byung-sik being extremely envious with her protégé she introduced to the household, being the unjaded hard and younger worker who earns the trust of the family, and probably she had wanted to show the young upstart her place in the hierarchy established. And of course the main cusp of the problems Eun-yi will face stem from the child in her, threatening the balance of power especially that of mistresses and maid, with stuff that’s what television melodramas get made of. To the audience, we don’t feel that Eun- yi is of the scheming type, but to the other women, here’s a chance of their objectives being detailed by something most unfortunate, a major threat that can come sooner or later in their lives that they have to act, and stop now. Jeon Do-yeon deserves all the acting accolades she has received thus far for her role, and we feel the pain she has to go through in having traumatic experiences forced upon her just because she’s in no position to bargain, until the defining moment in the finale where she gains the upper hand but at what a price at scarring the family for life. I haven’t seen Lee Jung-jae in action since Il Mare, and here he does an about turn in a negative role that portrays the caddish behaviour of someone who has it all, while the young Seo Woo portrays the wife that’s quite reasonable to begin with, that typical tai-tai but with innocence, until hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. It is the power struggles and the changing of the household dynamics that makes The Housemaid an engaging watch as we witness an internal rot that was waiting to happen. While it may not reach the heights of Kim Ki-young’s original, Im Sang-soo’s version still keeps things tight and is a wonderful exploration of how perceived threats redefines relationships especially that amongst those with material benefits. Recommended!

For once a remake that’s not a blueprint of a classic movie with its integrity taken from it to cash away on its acclaim. This I watched the following day from watching the 1960 one, a bit sceptical I must admit. That turned out to be unwarranted as this adaptation is more inspired by than copying the original. What we get here is a uncharming view of the nouveau riche and the naive housemaid picking up what is thrown to her. The direction is amazing, location is stunning, sultry sex-scenes abound, clever plot and a breathtaking ending is some of the things this movie will reward you with. All main actors/actresses fit their role perfectly.
