Korea's 'Parasite' wins best foreign language film Golden GlobeWorld | 6 Jan 2020 10:04 am
The groundbreaking class satire from South Korea “Parasite” is the winner of the Golden Globe Award for best foreign language film.
Director Bong Joon Ho’s movie has been one of the year’s most acclaimed films, in May becoming the first Korean film to win the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
The film is about a family of hustlers who insert themselves in the lives of a wealthy family. It is ineligible to compete in the Globes’ two best picture categories, but is considered a strong candidate for a best film Oscar nomination later this month.
Bong spoke out for foreign films in his acceptance.
“Once you overcome the 1-inch-tall barrier of subtitles, you will experience so many more amazing films,” the director said through a translator.-AP
