Directed by Park Chan-wuk, the director of drama hit "JSA - Joint Security Area" and "Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance", action suspenser "Old Boy" tells a story from a Japanese comic book of the same title.

Oh Dae-soo (Choi Min-sik) is a business man who is suddenly kidnapped and confined in a cell with only a television set. He makes various efforts to escape and even attempts to commit suicide, but all end up in failure. Dae-soo one day watches a news about his wife being murdered and he being wanted by the police. Feeling shocked and deeply grieved, Dae-soo begins to dig a hole in the room with a spoon to get his way out to revenge the lost of his wife on the real culprit.

After 15 years, Dae-soo succeeds in escaping from the cell and returns to the society. He runs into a girl called Midom, who promised to help him to trace the whole story. Meanwhile a suspicious man called Woo Jin (Yoo Ju-tae) proposes a game with Dae-soo. He says if Dae-soo finds out the reason for his imprisonment within 5 days, he will kill himself; otherwise, Mido will be killed…

Starring Choi Min-sik from "Shiri" and Yoo Ji-tae from "Into the Mirror", "Old Boy" demonstrates Park's cinematic techniques using computer graphics and a collage of images to tell the mystery. Check out this latest work of Park that has brought Korean film to a new high in international cinema.

"Old Boy's" artistic efforts were honored with the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. [Quelle: YesAsia.com]
