Lady Vengeance
Filmfest 2006

South Korean maestro Park Chan-wook concludes his Revenge Trilogy - this time around, the hero is a heroine. On the heels of her release from prison, Lee Geum-ja embarks on a mission to track down the man responsible for her imprisonment, which also resulted in her being forced to give up her daughter for adoption. Hardened by years in the penitentiary and endlessly fantasizing about the right way to exact revenge, she enlists the help of former cellmates to accomplish her goal. But what she uncovers is a secret so horrifying that no revenge seems fitting. Beginning as a flashy, almost lighthearted spectacle, SYMPATHY FOR LADY VENGEANCE gradually reveals itself to be a poignant commentary on the futility of revenge. www.rottentomatoes.com
