Sympathy for Mr Vengeance
- South Korea
- 2h 1min
- Directed by: Park Chan-Wook
When a deaf mute is laid off work, he struggles to find the money for his dying sister's kidney transplant. After some bad experiences in the medical black market the siblings decide to resort to the kidnap of a child to raise funds for the operation, but things do not run smoothly. Lee Jae-Sun and Lee Mu-Yeong's beautifully structured script is the key to this complex, ultra-violent vision of love, loss and revenge. Chan-Woo shifts and twists the action till you don't really have a clue what is going on - but you can't tear yourself away.
