A totally gratuitous mind-spin of a movie which won the Prix du Jury at Cannes. Try this for a plot: a businessman is kidnapped by persons unknown. He's imprisoned in a cheap hotel room. For 15 years. Then without warning or reason, he's given a mobile phone, and invited to find the man who stole 15 years of his life. A revenge drama of awesome proportions, this is virtuoso film-making from a Korean master. You will never ever eat calamari again.
