Korean film
The Thieves + Q&A

 

When Jesus was nailed to the cross, a thief was hung alongside. Thievery is one of the oldest professions known to man. When people started amassing wealth, thieves were there. Some thieves steal money, some steal hearts and some try to steal the world. This film is their story. Choi Dong-hoon

After a large heist, five of Korea’s most infamous thieves, Popeye, Pepsi, Yenicall, Zampano and Chewingum, jump at the chance to get out of town when offered a job in Macao. Their goal is to steal the ‘Tear of the Sun’, a 318 carat diamond, worth over $20 million at the Macao Casino. The brain behind the break-in is Macao Park who has assembled his own Chinese team to join the crew. However tensions run high when person histories get in the way of the present and some of the criminals having their own designs on the diamond and are willing to double cross the other to make off with the prize.

The Thieves is one of Korea’s largest co-production with a fantastic Korean and Hong Kong cast including Kim Yun-seok (Yellow Sea), Kim Hye-soo (The Red Shoes), Lee Jung-jae (The Housemaid), Simon Yam (Election 1 & 2) and Derek Tsang (The Eye 2). The director is no slouch either with a number of big critical and commercial films including the 2009 smash Woochi the Demon Slayer and 2006’s Tazza: The High Rollers. This mix of amazing talent and a gripping, high impact story has made The Thieves one of the biggest grossing films in Korea’s box office history.
