Park Chan-wook’s international breakthrough, OLDBOY returns to cinema screens in a newly remastered digital version thanks to Neon. After being mysteriously kidnapped and imprisoned with no human contact for fifteen years, Oh Dae-Su (Choi Min-sik) is suddenly released without any explanation. In a twisted game of cat and mouse, he has only five days to retrace his past, track down his captors, and get his revenge.
“A lurid, complex, introspective beast, enacting astonishing cruelty on its protagonist like a slow-acting poison.” – Kambole Campbell, Little White Lies
Ivy: “I haven’t seen this stunner since it came out 20 years ago and am looking forward to going back to the film where I first entered the mind of Park Chan-Wook.”
