This makes my top-ten list for the year, no doubt about it. Taking the best elements of 'Chinatown' and 'Saw', subtracting the gore, and adding a little gallows humour, and you have one of the most riveting flicks I've seen in a long time.

The tale of revenge features a middle-class businessman who for reasons unknown is held captive in a dingy hotel room for FIFTEEN YEARS. When he is unexpectedly released he finds that he has only a few days to figure out not just who did this to him, but why?

A mystery wrapped inside a revenge tale, my only comparison in recent memory would be 'The Limey'.

5 Star viewing (though get the subtitled version, the dubbing will give you a headache).
