The 2003 movie Oldboy is the second in a trilogy known as The Vengeance Trilogy. While not my favorite of all three movies it is probably the most well know. This is the story of Oh Dae-Su, who is imprisoned in a hotel room for 15 years and then released with no explanation as to why he was confined and released. When he is released falls for a young chef, but then must learn who his captor is and figure out why he was imprisoned or his new love interest will be killed.

Sometimes more can be said by not saying anything at all. I think that was the premise for the movie 3 Iron (aka Bin Jip). In this story a young man breaks into the homes of vacationers and essentially lives their life for the night. He is even kind enough to repay them for their unknowing hospitality by doing their laundry and fixing things that are broken around their house. Everything takes a turn for him when one of the homes he breaks into is actually occupied by a beautiful woman who is hiding in her home from her abusive husband.
There is very little dialog in this entire film. That is part of the allure that drove me to watch this film. I was not let down one bit. This movie absolutely moved me!
