Oldboy (2003)

Park Chan-wook directed and co-wrote Oldboy, a 2003 South Korean neo-noir action thriller film. The film is based on the Japanese manga of the same name and tells the story of Oh Dae-su (Choi Min-sik), who has been imprisoned in a cell that looks like a hotel room for 15 years without knowing who his captor is or what his captor's motivations are. When Dae-su is ultimately let free, he discovers that he is still caught up in a web of deception and brutality. When he falls in love with Mi-do, a beautiful young sushi chef, his own desire for revenge gets entwined with romance (Kang Hye-jung).

At the 2004 Cannes Picture Festival, the film received the Grand Prix and strong acclaim from the jury's president, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino. Oldboy has garnered positive reviews from reviewers in the United States, with Roger Ebert remarking that the film is "powerful not because of what it shows, but because of the depths of the human heart that it exposes naked." It was highly praised for its action moments, particularly the single-shot combat. It has been hailed as one of the finest neo-noir films of all time, and various publications have named it among the top films of the 2000s. The film has been recreated twice, once in Hindi in 2006 and again in English in 2013.
