LOS ANGELES, United States (AFP) — South Korea’s “Parasite,” a vicious satire about the rich-poor divide, on Sunday won the Golden Globe for best foreign language film, edging out a top crop of nominees.
“Wow, amazing, unbelievable,” gushed director Bong Joon-ho as he accepted the award.
“Once you overcome the one-inch-tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films.”
The film bested France’s “Les Miserables,” Pedro Almodovar’s “Pain and Glory,” Chinese-American family drama “The Farewell” and France’s “Portrait of a Lady on Fire.”
