When a young girl is snatched away from her father by an unidentified giant creature that emerges from the Han River to wreak havoc on Seoul, her entire family sets out to locate the horrifying monster and bring their little girl back home to safety.

MUBI's take

Bursting forth from South Korea, this instant cult classic from Oscar-winner Bong Joon-ho (Parasite) took the world by surprise in 2006. Here was a monster movie that was not just scary, but funny, smart, warm, laced with satire, and a little bit nuts. A spunky hit for the new millennium.
