How ‘Parasite’ Handles a ‘Mission: Impossible’ Moment | Anatomy of a Scene How ‘Parasite’ Handles a ‘Mission: Impossible’ Moment | Anatomy of a SceneHello, this is functional director of parasite, one family infiltrate to other family. This is in the middle of that process. That’S kind of moment Mission Impossible. The TV series when I was a little kid I have a huge fan. This is some kind of nerdy family version of Mission Impossible enjoy this moment of the young son. He he’s kind of manipulator, he he controlled everything and he has a plan when they rehearsed. It looks like a kind of filmmaking. If it is like a thumb, is director, the father is the actor I didn’t take a rising out of the oven. I intentionally shoot those shots very quickly and some very spontaneous reaction and Southern small improvised something happened very naturally loading the camera. That kind of momentary feeling is very important. In “Parasite,” a poor family figures out a few tricky ways to earn their livelihood from one particular rich family. This scene shows them executing one of their deceptions, while simultaneously showing them rehearse for the moment.
The sequence plays a bit like an action scene from the television series “Mission: Impossible,” which the director, Bong Joon Ho, cited as inspiration.
Additionally, the process of acting and directing is deconstructed in the scene as the son (Choi Woo Shik), gives performance notes to his father (Song Kang Ho) about the manipulative story they’re spinning. In his narration of the scene, Bong discusses working with his actors to give the moment an improvisational feel.
