Synopsis

After being wrongfully convicted, a woman is imprisoned for 13 years and forced to give up her daughter. While in prison she gains the respect of her cellmates and plots her revenge on the man responsible. Once released, she begins her elaborate plan of retribution, but discovers a horrifying truth.

Our take

South Korea’s 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 forever haunt our dreams. A beautiful trip to the dark side, and the end of the series’ rocky road towards salvation.
