On the 15th (local time), ‘Decision to Break Up’ ranked 9th on the list of ‘2022 Best 50 Movies’ announced by the Guardian at the end of the year.

The Guardian ranked ‘Decision to Break Up’ at number 9 on the 13th, introducing it as “Korean director Park Chan-wook’s sensuous ‘black widow’ crime romance” and adding, “Recently, he has distanced himself from the extreme violence that brought him fame. I was immersed in a rich and suspenseful thriller.”
As for actress Tang Wei, who played the female lead, she praised her performance as “strong, menacing and charming” and showed “overwhelming charisma”.
In this ranking, ‘Broker’ starring Song Kang-ho was ranked 49th. ‘Decision to Break Up’ is an anticipated Korean wave following ‘Parasite’, ‘Buttercup’ and ‘Squid Game’ on the overseas stage, and has been nominated for the Non-English Film Award at the Golden Globes, one of the two major American film awards.
