On the subtitles of ‘Parasite’ (things get lost in translation)

For fans of Bong Joon-ho’s film, Parasite, here’s a fine essay on some of the things lost in translation:

I am not too surprised: any film would lose something in translation, and a smart film like this one takes on further risk as it aims to speak to audiences at different levels.

Of course if you haven’t seen the film yet, I highly recommend it (and recommend you watch it before reading more about it).
