Vengeance

mr_vengeanceSympathy for Mr. Vengeance is a 2002 South Korean film directed by Park Chan-wook, in which a recently laid off factory worker kidnaps his former boss’ daughter to try to get the money to pay for his sister’s kidney transplant. The synopsis seems straight forward enough but this compelling film is breath-taking in the twisted path it takes; the multi-layered story constantly amazes with its unexpected directions.

Apparently just as with Oldboy [this director’s 2nd vengeance film] there is going to be a Hollywood remake – bah! They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but perhaps western audiences just need to learn how to read and enjoy subtitles? Something is always lost in translation; usually all the subtleties.
