The brand new trailer for Park Chan-wook‘s The Handmaiden has landed ahead of its Cannes premiere.

Based on the British novel ‘Fingersmith’ by Sarah Waters, The Handmaiden takes place in Korea during the Japanese colonial period (1910-45) and tells the story of a young female pickpocket (Kim Tae-ri), who is hired by a conman (Ha Jung-woon) to win the trust of a wealthy heiress (Kim Min-hee), only to end up falling for her.
