Lady Vengeance 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. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
Not the best in the trilogy
Posted by: NickNarwhal from: LaX, WI on
After reading Jory's review I had to watch it to see if he was right and he was for the most part. The plot is definitely the worst in the trilogy, at least in my opinion, it isn't horrible though. For seemingly the first half of the movie they're just setting up character background, and does kinda seem to rely on shock value to keep your interest, it didn't really work on me, i find relying on shock value to be cheap and it was kinda boring. To say the films are more about shock value than anything, though, is to be completely blind. If you watch movies for action and don't like to think, watch a different movie. I honestly don't know if I'd recommend it, I might mention it and say "It was nothing special, but I'm glad I finally finished the trilogy." I guess if you liked Mr. Vengeance (and Oldboy I guess, but it's really nothing like that) and really wanted to finish the trilogy I'd recommend it, but don't expect the same amount of emotion, at least I found it non existent for a good chunk of the movie, but maybe that was on purpose Either way, there were times when I just wanted to turn the movie off and say screw it, but I'm glad I didn't.

Not nearly as good as Oldboy
Posted by: Jory from: Seattle, WA on
For fans of Oldboy you might want to check this out just to say you've seen the trilogy, which means you also have to sit through Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, yet I wont recommend it. You see these films are more for shock value than anything else. The director has some issues and I really am not interested in helping him sort them out. It involves child molestation, father daughter situations, abuse, children getting murdered by their teacher, and other things that I don't jump up and down and say, "Hey, that's a great idea for a movie, why didn't I think of that." He's like John Waters with no sense of humor and an amazing ability to compose images. I did like Oldboy even in the midst of the topic. At least it had a plot that stirred emotion.

Thoughtful and violent film
Posted by: Eric from: on
Part of Chan Wook Park's "Vengeance" trilogy, "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" is haunting and effective. It thoughtfully examines the concepts of justice, revenge, and forgiveness. Not for the faint of heart.
