After being kidnapped and imprisoned for fifteen years, Oh Dae-Su is released, only to find that he must find his captor in five days.
The line on the painting of Dae Su's cell reads "Laugh and the world laughs with you. Weep and you weep alone." These are the first lines of Ella Wheeler Wilcox's famous poem, "Solitude".
All I could think about in that moment was the guy in the next room was eating with only one chopstick.
Just before the scene where Dae-su Oh meets the suicidal man at the top of a building, there is a part when he finds out he wears an expensive suit and a watch. When he grabs the man however, the watch is gone.
