Fifteen years of imprisonment, five days of vengeance
One of the greatest and most jaw-droppingly shocking movies of all time, Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy turns 20 years old in 2023. Oldboy follows Oh Dae-su, portrayed by Choi Min-sik as an ordinary businessman and father who finds himself in a far-reaching conspiracy. Oh Dae-su is kidnapped and imprisoned, only to be released 15 years later. The man, now freed, has five days to find out who locked him up and why in this gritty action-revenge feature. This dark, disturbing, and twist-filled film continues as Dae-su begins an intense romance with the young sushi chef Mi-do (Kang Hye-jeong), who takes him in. Featuring relentless brutality alongside a compelling plot and fantastic cinematography, Oldboy serves as the second installment of Park Chan-wook's The Vengence Triology, following Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (2002) and preceding Lady Vengeance (2005) .
Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Grand Prix. We are delighted to share this new strand of scary, funny, sexy, controversial and provocative after-dark feature, bite-sized bits for night owls, and the terminally curious for all of your sex, gore, and funny bone cravings. Not to be missed Park Chan-Wook's cinematic masterpiece Old Boy.
