Sympathy for Lady Vengeance

South Korea, 2005
Drama, Thriller, Crime
  • Korean

The third and final film of Park’s Vengeance Trilogy, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance follows the story of Lee Geum-ja, a woman imprisoned for a crime she did not commit. Lee then seeks revenge on the true perpetrator, who blackmailed her to take the blame for his crime and kidnapped her daughter…

Our take

Park Chan-wook ended his “Vengeance Trilogy” in style (and to great blockbuster success) with this characteristically twisted, baroque thriller, whose Lee Young-ae will haunt our dreams. A beautiful trip to the dark side, and the end of the trilogy’s rocky road towards salvation.
