  1. McOpinionated's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    Oh well. A documentary would be more interesting but it had a certain style.

  2. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    There are plenty of far superior South Korean movies out there, but The Taste Of Money is an interesting look at what happens when organised crime clashes with people falling in and out of love. It's a slow and sedate film, no real lashings of ultraviolence here, but none the worse for it.

  3. The Ceramicist's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    I am rarely convinced by this genre, but I felt the Taste of Money balanced voyeurism with awe and empathy brilliantly. It stuck to its narrow fly-on-the wall like portrayal of events without trying to present the story from conflicting view points and didn't indulge in preaching. The pace of the story telling gets a little too quick towards the end, but the wondrous aesthetics keep your disbelief in suspense.

  4. Eva Bosch's rating of the film The Taste of Money

  5. BernardoL's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    The Taste of Money is almost like a sequel to Im-Sang Soo 's previous film, 'The Housemaid'. The themes are virtually identical and once again the director showcases his wonderful stylized cinematography and attention to detail.

  6. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    Il y a fatalement quelque chose d'envoûtant dans cette mise en scène et cette perdition des personnages. L'esthétique particulièrement travaillée et la beauté des comédiens glacent le spectateur et créent aussi la limite d'un film finalement artificiel ; un peu comme un panda en bas résilles et vernis à ongles...

  7. Christophe's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    Le traitement est à part sur une famille mafieuse, mais cela reste peu relevant, malgré le soin de la photographie

  8. xevli's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    joli mais court en bouche !

  9. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    Im Sang-soo is fascinated by money & ancillary relationships (The Housemaid). And by Yun Yeo-Jung's (68) faded beauty, also starring in these 2 movies (& Kim Ki-Young's favorite actress). Im Sang-soo est fasciné par l'argent & les relations ancillaires (The Housemaid). Et par la beauté fanée de Yun Yeo-Jung (68) également vedette de ces 2 films & actrice fétiche de Kim Ki-Young (La Femme insecte 1972). Amour partagé.

  10. fearraigh's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    Way too slick, overblown and full of caricatures. Makes you pine for Im Sang-soo's far better earlier films such as A Good Lawyer's Life and The President's Last Bang.

  11. fada19's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    Étrange et dérangeant , heureusement beaucoup d'humours sinon ce serait glauque !

  12. Bastien G.'s rating of the film The Taste of Money

    the housemaid is 10x better.

  13. Ostermyers's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    Some cool stuff. En fait, Im Sang-soo a fait un diptyque sur les riches, l'un du coté du père, l'autre de la mère. Les deux sont pourris. Le dialogue avec The Housemaid est assez évident, les deux versions sont dans le film heh.

  14. osage's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    un vrai univers, de la lumière, du cadre, des comédiens ... bref du cinoche !

  15. cyrikelly's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    Dommage, 2h de film...mais pas du tout convainquant. Pas de profondeur, le monde de l'argent et de l'escroquerie n'est pas du tout crédible.

  16. bessede's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    encore un mauvais film (vu au ciné)....! Vous faites les fond de catalogue, c'est la crise ? :-) pas tarder à me désabonner moi....

  17. Sơn Nguyễn's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    In two hours with not much events, this movie is slow like a heart beating. Sometimes it skipped a beat. Im sang-soo is really good at the cinematography, the air and environment. But I think the story is not new and predictable.

  18. Wonderlands's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    Unfortunately, some of the criticism pointed out here is true but this should not prevent anyone from watching "The Taste of Money". Korean (big budget) movies tend to look beautiful but this film's production design is simply jaw-dropping.

  19. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    Not as polished and convincing as The Housemaid remake. There is no tension, no surprises, no nuances. But the biggest flaw is that the film lacks perversity. This Borgia family is nowhere as evil as it has been described. Ultimately, the taste of money falls flat.

  20. Scout Tafoya's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    Lacks the fatalistic unease of Housemaid, yet has something else stranger on offer. Taste unfolds like a mystery, with murder and sabotage that wouldn't be out of place in a giallo save for one thing: whodunnit is of no importance. We know who but it doesn't matter. Im's compositions are still first-rate, even among South Koreans, as he/his leads chase some singularly strange and ugly truth. Who knows if he found it?

  21. Chayanin Tiangpitayagorn's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    A total farce on billionaires, since The Housemaid which is a prequel of this one. Hilarious!

  22. Товарищ Петя.'s rating of the film The Taste of Money

    Indeed a feast for the eyes. As for the rest I wasn't too excited. And what was he thinking casting Darcy Paquet, whose part is barely even listed anywhere!

  23. fortytwoshadesofblue's rating of the film The Taste of Money

    A feast for the eyes, more enjoyable if you watched The Housemaid. The story is a bit of a let down but the aesthetics of the film plus some solid performances saved the film. #miff2012
