Saw this last night at the Watershed in Bristol. It's a Korean movie that I wanted to see when I was out there, but couldn't find it with any subtitles.

An average man is kidnapped and imprisoned in a hotel room for 15 years without explanation. He then is released, equipped with money, a cellphone and expensive clothes. As he strives to explain his imprisonment and get his revenge, he soon finds out that not only his kidnapper has still plans for him, but that those plans will serve as the even worse finale to 15 years of imprisonment.

It's a very cool, often funny, often brutal and very weird movie. I strongly suggest that you watch it because it fucking rocks. :beer:

It has fighting and boobies, what more could you want?

Not released on DVD in the UK until February, though: http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0006GVJLM/qid=1100120512/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl/026-6468639-8481248

An english-language remake is scheduled for release in 2006, but it'll be shit because things like that always are. Don't bother waiting for it.

Sounds like an excellent premise for a film. Can you bump this thread in February please? I'd be tempted to buy it...

I imagine that you could find a "special preview copy" on the internet somewhere, if you looked in the right places.
