In South Korea, the Kia Motors dealer Lee Jung-Soo (Jung-woo Ha) is driving home with a birthday cake to celebrate the anniversary of his daughter. While crossing a tunnel, it collapses and Lee is trapped inside. Using his cellphone, he is capable to communicate with the rescue team leader and with his wife. Now Lee must survive waiting for the rescue.
"Teo-neol", a.k.a. "The Tunnel", is a dramatic thriller about the rescue operation to save a man trapped inside a collapsed tunnel. The storyline is engaging, with good performances and melodramatic dialogs between Lee and his wife. This disaster movie shows a sharp criticism to politicians that wants to use tragedies to show up with the victims; to the press that disturbs people that is seriously working to sell "fresh" news to the audiences; and to the quality of public constructions in South Korea. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil):"O Túnel" ("The Tunnel")
