Rating: 3/5 -- It feels like Im intended this as a moral fable. He should have played for laughs; material this blunt works best as satire. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- A veritable orgy of vulgar melodrama, The Taste of Money might pass as satire if the conclusions drawn were not so broad and unsurprising. Full Review
Irish Times
Oct 25, 2013
Rating: 3/5 -- It's ultimately wearing, yet somehow memorable. Full Review
London Evening Standard
Oct 25, 2013
Rating: 5/10 -- The story bounces about in a fashion that's as chaotic as the film's visuals are placid, suffused with sumptuous malice. Full Review
Feb 6, 2013
A glossy, heavy-handed soap opera with all the complexity of a four-piece jigsaw puzzle. Full Review
Electric Sheep

Rating: 2/5 -- The director seems uncertain whether he is making a slow-burning character drama or a satirical gangster movie about modern-day Seoul's answer to the Borgias. Full Review

Rating: 1/5 -- This is a completely unenlightening cri de coeur against the most obvious targets of financial-spiritual discontent. Full Review

Product Description:

An ambitious Korean secretary becomes a sexual pawn in the lives of his wealthy employers, experiencing an acute crisis of conscience after falling for their gorgeous daughter in writer/director Im Sang-soo's follow-up to the critically acclaimed 2010 drama THE HOUSEMAID. Young-jak works directly for Yoon -- the influential president of a major conglomerate. Young-jak has designs on owning his own company some day when, enraged at having caught her husband sleeping with their Filipino maid, Yoon's wife Madame Baek targets him for seduction. Meanwhile, Young-jak finds himself irresistibly attracted to Yoon and Madame Baek's virtuous young daughter. But to pursue her would mean giving up on his dreams of achieving unlimited wealth -- a sacrifice Young-jak isn't sure he's willing to make as he climbs the ladder to success.
