On the dangerous edge of the subway platform, a junkie suddenly darts at a man waiting there and thrusts Twenty Questions before him. Under threat of getting killed if he guesses the riddles wrong, the unexpected game forces the man to a turning point between life and death. Will he make it to the right answer...? This is a film outstanding for its thriller wit, and where the delicate mise-en-scene of the director, tension and irony are all well united. (Byun Jai-ran)
