Parasite, from South Korean director Bong Joon-ho, was a hit with critics when it played at the Cannes Film Festival – quickly becoming one of the favourites for the Palme d’Or.

In Parasite, as well as previous films Okja, Snowpiercer and The Host, Bong swiftly switches tone, so that a light-hearted comedy becomes a devastating tragedy at a moment’s notice.
