Parasite breaks international film record

Oscar-winning South Korean movie Parasite has achieved another milestone by becoming the highest-grossing non-English language film in the UK.

The winner of the best picture Oscar has taken a total of £11.5m at the box office since its release on 7 February.

Its success ends the reign of The Passion of the Christ, which had held the top spot with £11.1m since 2004.

Bong Joon Ho’s black comedy 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.

The film 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.
