About the Film:

Directed by Park Chan-Wook. 2002. Korea. 129 mins. Korean with English subtitles.

A deaf mute named Ryu (Shin Ha-kyun) longs to help his sister (Lim Ji-Eun) get a kidney transplant. Because his blood type is incompatible and no donors are available, he turns to a group of black-market organ dealers who offer to find one in return for one of his and ten million won. When the dealers rip him off, Ryu conspires with his girlfriend, a political activist, to kidnap his former boss’s daughter for ransom. But a horrible complication ruins their plans and things spiral out of control as the girl’s father (Song Kang-ho) takes matters into his own hands with the help of a sympathetic cop.
