Description The Kims - mother and father Chung-sook and Ki-taek, and their young adult offspring, son Ki-woo and daughter Ki-jung - are a poor family living in a shabby and cramped half basement apartment in a busy lower working class commercial district of Seoul. Without even knowing it, they, especially Mr. and Mrs. Kim, literally smell of poverty. Often as a collective, they perpetrate minor scams to get by, and even when they have jobs, they do the minimum work required. Ki-woo is the one who has dreams of getting out of poverty by one day going to university. Despite not having that university education, Ki-woo is chosen by his university student friend Min, who is leaving to go to school, to take over his tutoring job to Park Da-hye, who Min plans to date once he returns to Seoul and she herself is in university. The Parks are a wealthy family who for four years have lived in their modernistic house designed by and the former residence of famed architect Namgoong. While Mr. and Mrs. Park are all about status, Mrs. Park has a flighty, simpleminded mentality and temperament, which Min tells Ki-woo to feel comfortable in lying to her about his education to get the job. In getting the job, Ki-woo further learns that Mrs. Park is looking for an art therapist for the Parks' adolescent son, Da-song, Ki-woo quickly recommending his professional art therapist friend "Jessica", really Ki-jung who he knows can pull off the scam in being the easiest liar of the four Kims. In Ki-woo also falling for Da-hye, he begins to envision himself in that house, and thus the Kims as a collective start a plan for all the Kims, like Ki-jung using assumed names, to replace existing servants in the Parks' employ in orchestrating reasons for them to be fired. The most difficult to get rid of may be Moon-gwang, the Parks' housekeeper who literally came with the house - she Namgoong's housekeeper when he lived there - and thus knows all the little nooks and crannies of it better than the Parks themselves. The question then becomes how far the Kims can take this scam in their quest to become their version of the Parks.

I am a big fan of Yimou Zhang's work. He does not fail to impress me with his knack for developing a story with humor, or of making every scene a joy. I really enjoyed "Yitang", though it is not his best film. I do not think it is his best film, but it is certainly the most entertaining. In "Yitang" he portrays an American couple with a young child, living in the rural mountains of Laos, being chased by vicious gangs of killers. Their only means of escape is to attempt to smuggle a gold ring stolen from the French ambassador. While not the best film in the world, it is by far one of the most entertaining. The plot is well thought out, the cinematography and editing are excellent, the music is amazing, and the performances are well done. The acting of the two leads, Charlie (Max Minghella) and Anne (Joanne Zhang) is absolutely fantastic. Even the kids, who are not in the film that much, give wonderful performances. As far as the direction, there is something about this film that really makes it a pleasure to watch. The camera-work is terrific, the cinematography is outstanding, and the editing is excellent. The acting in the film is flawless. The acting is not what you would expect from a Charlie Chan movie. It is so incredibly well done that it makes you forget that you are watching a Charlie Chan movie. The young actors are convincing, and the big names of Charlie Chan also turn in brilliant performances. As for the production, it is absolutely stunning. I can't really say much more about it. The film is beautifully shot, the cinematography is wonderful, and the production design is simply spectacular. The story is charming, the story is well thought out, and the characters are wonderful. As far as the film, it is a delight. I highly recommend it. This is my favorite Yimou Zhang film, and I think it is his best film. If you haven't seen this film, I highly recommend it.
