The Big Swindle
2004. Directed by Choi Dong-hoon , starring Baek Yoon-sik, Park Shin-yang , 116 mins.
Several years before his huge box office hits The Thieves and Assassination, director Choi Dong-hoon wrote and directed The Big Swindle, a briskly paced cinematic rollercoaster ride detailing the efforts of a group of criminals, including veteran con-artist Mr. Kim (Baek Yoon-sik), to locate deceased con man Chang-hyuk’s (Park Shin-yang) swindled cash pile before the police can catch on to their dodgy dealings. Chock full of double and triple-crosses, The Big Swindle won a host of awards in its year of release including several for Baek Yoon-sik as Best Supporting Actor, the stand out performance of this all round superbly acted film.
