I hope that you will overcome language differences oldboyand see this South Korean movie, because it`s a fuckin master piece. Oh Dae-Su was imprisoned for fifteen years but not in jail, when he is finally released he`s looking for blood and reason for his incarceration. Ultimate story of built up anger and revenge with lots of graphic violence and great production values. A special perk is the sick ending, and would stop my review here with a definite recommendation. Just enjoy.

Director: Chan-wook Park

Cast: Min-sik Choi, Ji-tae Yu, Hye-jeong Kang, Dae-han Ji

Fun Stuff: Four live octopodes were eaten for the scene with Dae-su in the sushi bar, a scene which provoked some controversy abroad. Eating live octopus in Korea is commonplace although it is usually sliced first. When the film won the Grand Prix at Cannes, the director thanked the octopodes along with the cast and crew.
