Apart from the Oscar award, South Korean movie Parasite has achieved the feat of becoming the highest-grossing non-English language film in the UK.
Reports from BBC reveal that, since its release on 7 February the winner of the best picture Oscar has taken a total of £11.5m at the box office.
Another feat achieved by the movie at the moment, is that the movie’s success ends the reign of The Passion of the Christ, which had held the top spot with £11.1m since 2004.
Going memory lane, Bong Joon Ho’s black comedy has also made history as the first international film to win the best picture Oscar.
It won four Oscars overall at this year’s event, also taking home the famous statuettes for best director, best international film and best original screenplay.
Another interesting thing the film can be remembered for is that, it is a vicious social satire about two families from different classes in Seoul – one who live in poverty in a semi-basement, and another who live in a large home in an affluent area.
A major theme that the film has is that, the film revolves around the poor family’s plans to infiltrate the life and home of the much wealthier one.
