Overview

A woman looks for both revenge and redemption after spending 13 years in prison in this offbeat thriller from South Korea. Lee Geum-ja Lee Yeong-ae was in her early twenties when she was found guilty of kidnapping and killing a young boy, and though she confessed to the crime under duress, while behind bars she dreamed of one day being able to clear her name -- and even the score with the people who railroaded her, including the police officer who brought her in Nam Il-woo and Mr. Baek Choi Min-Sik, a teacher who wronged her in a number of ways. Lee Geun-ja teams up with a number of friends she made during her time in lock-up, including Woo So-yeong Kim Bu-seon, a thief with a gunsmith for a husband; Oh Su-heui Ra Mi-ran, who was saved from assault at the hands fellow inmates by Lee; and Preacher Jeon Kim Byeong-ok, an eccentric man of the cloth who was struck by her gentle nature in jail. As Preacher Jeon helps Lee seek salvation for all she had to do while in prison, her other friends stand by her side as she gets even with her rivals and searches for the daughter she was forced to leave behind when she was convicted. Sympathy for Lady Vengeance aka Chinjeolhan Geum-ja-ssi was the third film in a series, preceded by Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, and Old Boy.

    Good god woman!

    By the gods! indeed this film is the Bonnie and Clyde theme of the new millenium. Those of you autubots and mechebots out there who are familar with the cybernetic works of the Beastlord Slavedragon may be interested to know that this is the film is which begat the process of the metamorphasis of the reptilian beastdragon and becausing him to molt. It was here during the slow-motion replay of a bank robbery, where in which Chan Wook finds an eppifany and rapture as his woman is spewing bullets from a pistol in pirouette ballet. He was translated as saying; "It was at this moment that I knew my woman was a goddess" Just see the film for yourself. The Beastlord he hath spake.

    Park Chan-wook proves to us that he is one of the best directors from Korea.

    Park Chanwook made the perfect conclusion to a trilogy with Sympathy for Lady Vengeance. The three films work off each other beautifully, and Sympathy for Lady Vengeance is far from a disappointment. The acting is top-notch, with cameos from Park Chanwook's first two films intermingling with new talent. The directing is superb, not quite eclipsing Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance or Oldboy but coming quite close. Park's directing style is solid and distinctive he builds off earlier films and ideas to give an air of intensity surrounding the most innocent of scenes. SFLV cuts back on the violence and focuses on personal turmoil, a welcome change from the beginning of his revenge trilogy. My favorite elements of this movie are the use of flashbacks to tell the witty, yet complicated story, and that the film sticks to its theme of vengeance with a die-hard, unwavering dedication. The only thing holding back from a perfect score is a slow ending, one which is necessary to bring the trilogy to a close but still slightly treading. All in all, this film represents a master finishing his masterpiece, should be viewed by everyone, and works perfectly as a separate film and not a piece of a trilogy. Violence is minimal compared to Park's first two films, but is graphic. “Sympathy for Lady Vengeance” is one of the few films that will make people cry not out of sadness but out of love.
