Bong Joon-ho's 'Parasite' receives 8 minute standing ovation at Cannes Updated: 2019-05-23 06:59:26 KST

South Korean director Bong Joon-ho received an eight-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday night for his latest film "Parasite."

"I don't like to follow the convention or codes for genre films, I try to convey messages about society through these broken codes."

The audience at the 23-hundred seat Grand Theatre Lumiere burst into applause after the 2-hour long film.
"Parasite" portrays a poor family getting involved with a wealthy family residing in a gaudy mansion.
This is Bong's fifth time at Cannes and his second attempt to win the Palme d'Or in the main competition section, following "Okja" in 2017.
