Synopsis

Joong-ho is a dirty detective turned pimp in financial trouble as several of his girls have recently disappeared without clearing their debts. While trying to track them down, he finds a clue that the vanished girls were all called up by a same client whom one of his girls is meeting with right now.

Our take

Saturday night Korean noir! This stylish serial killer mystery was a big hit in its native land (and got scooped up for a screening at Cannes!), marking an auspicious debut for its director, Na Hong-jin. Frenetic, extreme, and high-velocity in the baroque traditions of 21st century Asian cinema.
