-I love the movie "Parasite."
It is one of the best films of the year.
You directed it and co-wrote this film.
I went in not knowing what the movie was about
and just heard buzz that this was great.
And I loved it.
I loved it, because -- I don't want to spoil anything.
-Yeah. -It's hard to describe
the movie. -Yeah.
How do you describe "Parasite"?
-[ Speaking Korean ]
-I'd like to say as little as possible here,
because the film is best when you go into the cold.
[ Light laughter ] -Anyway --
Well, this is a talk show. -Yeah, yeah.
-So, you have to say something.
[ Laughter ]
-[ Speaking Korean ]
-It's a story about a family.
The son goes into a rich house as a tutor
and the story unfolds from there.
-Just knock out performance. You just -- oh.
You feel sad for them, and then they make you laugh.
-Yeah. -And then they're in trouble.
And you go, "Oh -- Oh, don't. This is bad."
I mean, seriously, that you go through all of these --
-Yeah. -And then that's just the first,
kind of, half. -They're all very human.
Yeah. It's just funny and scary movie.
[ Laughter ]
[ Applause ]
-Yeah, yeah.
"Parasite" won the grand prize, the Palme d'Or
at the Cannes Film Festival. This is --
[ Cheers and applause ]
It was the first -- It was the first Korean film
to receive the award.
And you were the first Korean director to win the award.
Congratulations on that.
[ Cheers and applause ]
Here's what made me laugh.
I read that it got an eight-minute standing ovation
for the film. -Yeah.
-Eight minutes of people clapping.
And then you got up and all you said was,
"Thank you. Let's all go home."
[ Laughter ]
What happened? Why?
-'Cause actually the screening was very late night,
it was almost midnight and --
[ Speaking Korean ]
-So the standing ovation lasted very long.
But the actors and I were very hungry,
because we couldn't eat dinner. [ Laughter ]
-So, actually, me and the actors --
[ Speaking Korean ]
"I'm so hungry."
-We all were saying to each other, "We're so hungry."
And they ended up subtitling it in the video that was later.
-No, no. [ Laughter ]
-But applause never stopped.
So, finally I said, "Let's go home."
[ Laughter ]
[ Cheers and applause ]
-I think that's great.
