At the Oscars Sunday, the South Korean movie “Parasite” won best picture.
A movie wins best picture every year, but what’s special about “Parasite” is that it’s entirely in Korean. It’s the first non-English language to ever win best picture.
“Parasite” also took home awards for best original screenplay, best international film and best director.
The Oscar’s recognition of a film like this is a reminder that we don’t have to understand the language of a movie to enjoy it and take meaning from it.
