Hoezo in KINO

At the dawn of the new millennium the world was treated to the Korean New Wave: a surge of inspired, thought provoking and often controversial cinema built on the rising popularity of domestically produced features that gave rise to directors like Kim Ki-duk, Bong Joon Ho and Park Chan-wook. The latter gained international notoriety with his pitch black revenge thriller Oldboy, winning him the prestigious awards including the Grand Prix at Cannes. This bleak tale of a man held captive for fifteen years, then set loose to find the people responsible for this punishment, struck a nerve with international audiences and taught the world that you can apparently eat an octopus alive and that all you really need in a one-to-fifty fight is a claw hammer and true grit. This modern masterpiece of Korean cinema is coming back to the big screen to celebrate the release Park Chan-wook’s newest thriller Decision to Leave and will be screened in Korean with English and Dutch subtitles.
