I completely forgot about this movie in my movie round-up for 2005, so if anyone actually cares this was one of the films that I enjoyed. (call it number 11)

It's twisted as hell. One night, after getting completely shitfaced on his daughter's birthday (as a father I just don't get that), Oh Dae-Su is kidnapped and stuffed in a cell for 15 years without any explanation whatsoever. While imprisoned the only access he has to the outside world is through the TeeVee, where he discovers that his wife has been murdered and he's suspect el numero uno.

And that's only the first thirty minutes. Once he gets out and tries to figure out why someone would do that to him does the story really get interesting. In typical Park Chan-wook fashion the ending is completely fucked-up.

Good luck.
