There’s a family who are struggling – none of them have a job, they live in a tiny flat in the worst part of a poor neighbourhood. Then the son, Ki-woo (Choi Woo Shik) gets a job tutoring a girl in a wealthy and, one-by-one, they all end up enmeshed with this family. But things are never quite as they seems, and things get… strange. So strange. So funny.
I loved this film so much. It was weird and strange and funny and unexpected and crazy and sad and funny and weird… Oh, I seem to be going around in circles.
