Plot – Spoilers:
Oh Dae-su is what most people other than his few close friends would describe as obnoxious and annoying. After a drunken brawl that continues into the police station, Oh Dae-su is bailed out by a friend. He stops by at a phone booth to talk to his little daughter but is abducted by unknown people and dumped in a room. For 15 years. When he finally makes it out, he is seething with revenge and questions on why he was imprisoned.

There is not much else to say other than that Oldboy is one of the greatest films a human can ever see.

    Japanese and Korean Cinema is something beyond Hollywood. It requires specific taste to understand and enjoy. Love it.

      In somehow they’re(where they got they own unique rhythm and style, particularly plot wise and ow they act in – no tall- many ways. Yeah, indeed), and other ways they simply aren’t, not even close. Good that that has been settled down and clarified out as well:-)

    Oj’s comment wasn’t negative at all, why woud you need to replie such a negative response Juu? Breathe a little bit before you post such comment, maybe you are just a simple troll or maybe you are just a sad person, either way, I don’t envy you, relax, take a deep breath and start to feel what’s around you, spread love and not hate, in those dark times the only thing we should do is to better ourselves, understand and accept each other, if we don’t do that, we are doomed and probably deserve to be.
    The only way to change this horrendous world start by the way we act around each other.

    excellent photography, and acting, but too artsy for me. lame fight scenes. couldn’t even finish the movie. I Saw the Devil also staring Choi way better, Luved that one… check it out on this most excellent site. Also Ichi the Killer, one of my new all time favorites.

    “A tongue can accuse and carry bad news…the seeds of destruction will sow…but unless you’ve made no mistakes in your life…BE CAREFUL OF THE STONES YOU THROW!”. -Hank Williams Sr. Watch this most excellent film (and quite possibly most original film even by the exacting standards of Asian cinema) and you will have an even greater appreciation for the equally great lyrics quoted above! Mind your own mother fucking business and keep your yap shut!

    One of the best movies ever made period.

    eh from the swedish corona virus perspective this movie offers a interesting perspective on the Swedish coronavirus situation. The the isolation is to feel and and to touch from. I as a Swedish inhabitant can really relate to how the main character is feeling. This movie portrays a post-mordernistic view on the coronavirus 19 situation in Sweden. The main character can be portrayed as the conservative party’s ahm, and the opposing political view is the anti villain. This movie proves how the underdogs of society are actually the architect of the capitalists societal view. “The post modernists are obsessed with language”
