Abstract

This paper aims to study the gap between the rich and poor reflected in movie Parasite. Through the analysis of the audio-visual language of the movie, this article starts with the storytelling of Parasite, enumerates and analyses the elements that appear in the movie to reflect the gap between the rich and poor. The visual effects in the movie scenes to show the big difference in the living conditions of rich and poor families are analyzed. Based on the movie, this article focuses on researching the impact of the gap between the rich and the poor in real modern society, especially in aspects of education and employment. Through the investigation, it is concluded that in modern society, the rich have the vast majority of high-quality resources, and the uneven distribution of social resources makes it difficult for the poor to enter the rich class by their own efforts. The gradual consolidation of the social class has made the gap between the rich and the poor more obvious from generation to generation.
