Crimes This Horrible...Are Better Left Unsolved.
A smash success of the action-filled, highly-stylized New Asian Cinema, Tell Me Something is a serial killer thriller drenched in atmosphere and punctuated with moments of shocking violence.
Korean cinema superstar Han Suk-gyu stars as Lieutenant Cho, a cop on the edge who, while under investigation for graft and mourning the recent death of his mother, is suddenly put in charge of a seemingly impenetrable mystery. Dismembered corpses are being found in garbage bags around Seoul. However, the surgically-amputated arms, legs and heads are mismatched, rendering the victims nearly impossible to identify. When Cho discovers that all the victims were once romantically involved with the same woman, Suyeon Chae (Shim Eun-ha) becomes that focal point of the investigation. Growing more suspicious of Suyeon, even as he becomes more entranced by her icy charm, Cho realizes that the secret to the horrifying murders lies in the carefully guarded memories of her past.
