TAZZA: THE HIGH ROLLERS / 타짜


2006, 139 minutes
Director: Choi Dong-hoon
Cast: Cho Seung-woo, Kim Hye-soo and Baek Yoon-sik

Based on the cult-hit comic book series, Tazza’s anti-hero is Go-ni, a run-down gambling addict who’s lost all his and his sister’s money. In an exceptionally crafted Rocky-esque tale of redemption, Go-ni starts training with an old pro on Korea’s high stakes card game circuit. When he falls for Madame Jeong however, winning big takes a backseat to staying alive.
