PARASITE: ENTERTAINMENT AND SOCIAL CRITICISM GO HAND IN HAND.

   Hello dear readers, I hope are handling well this madness unleashed by the global pandemic that we are currently experiencing, I want as always to motivate you to continue each day with hope, because everything bad, eventually goes, and without a doubt leaves us learning.

   Today I bring you as the main theme a film that represents a criticism of the social system in which we are immersed.

PARASITE: ENTERTAINMENT AND SOCIAL CRITICISM GO HAND IN HAND.

   “Parasite” is a foreign film, from the year 2019, which takes place in South Korea, and describes the life of the Kim family, who can hardly survive. Really from my perspective and logic, this film has an impressive plot, although sometimes exaggerated; manages to trap the viewer in the chronology of his events; and it makes you illogical (or not) to side with the family that is theoretically acting in a wrong way.

    To sum it up, this low-income family dedicates itself to making pizza boxes, which although they manufacture them largely in a “formidable” way, having little time to manufacture them  ruin part of the order, and of course the pay

   They live in a kind of basement, which faces the street, where drunkards in broad daylight, are already doing their misdeeds, giving them a little encouraging panorama, peeing in nothing more and nothing less than the front of their home.

    Out of nowhere, and in the middle of the sea of desolation that plagues the poor family (although loaded with a lot of positivism), a great friend arrives at the house of who will be from my point of view our protagonist Ki-woo, with positive vibes and A great scholar stone to attract wealth and economic well-being to that humble family.

    This friend who is going abroad finally proposes to Ki-woo the opportunity to take his place in a wealthy house as an English teacher, and thus begins the family journey, to occupy all the available positions within the mansion, of course without revealing the filial bond that links them, and without even thinking about the damage they could cause in the lives of people who ended up successfully impersonating.

     Undoubtedly, events unfold rapidly; But something unexpected happens, there is a dark secret in that mansion, which is not exactly from the wealthy family.

    The film shows us the contrast of the humble family, with that of the wealthy family, who is still classist; because on several occasions they refer (from the smallest of its members) about the characteristic smell of “poverty”.

    Another detail of great impact for me was that the Kim family, along with another family from a low social stratum (like theirs) at the time of the discovery of the “secret” instead of reaching a deal not to reveal it (due they also hid many things) prefer to take advantage of the condition, and act (as always) selfishly.

    What makes us think deeply that the social system in which we live is really corrupt, and that in addition to not offering opportunities to those below, when they have it, instead of helping the other, they are trampling on it in order to inflate their ego and to feed their pretensions of superiority. On the other hand, for the rich, all this class struggle, which in the end ends up being the pillar or base of the society on which it rests, all this goes unnoticed.
