Original title : Chinjeolhan geumjassi
Lady Vengeance (2006) was the final piece of Park Chan-wook’s legendary revenge trilogy. After opening this sadistic ball with the terrific Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance in 2003 and punching us in the gut, the brain, the heart and anything else that could hurt us with the unsurpassed Old Boy (2005), he had perfected his revenge skills for this last masterfully crafted opus. We follow Guem-ja Lee who, after having served 13 years in jail for a crime she didn’t commit, is determined to make the true culprit pay for his crimes and then some. And just like the protagonists, the spectators will slowly sink away in an ethical, moral and emotional swamp, brilliantly captures in image and sound by Park Chan-wook.
