Directed By – Chan-wook Park
Screenplay By – Seo-Gyeong Jeong & Chan-wook Park
Cinematography By – Chung-hoon Chung
Starring Yeong-ae Lee & Min-sik Choi
Sympathy for Lady Vengeance is everything you’ve come to expect from Chan-wook Park. It’s visually stunning, it is thematically dense, and it blends the two into an enthralling piece of cinematic entertainment.
Of course Park gets an amazing performance from Min-sik Choi but it is Yeong-ae Lee as Lady Vengeance who carries this movie and brings all the gravitas needed as both a mother and deliverer of vengeance.
I really enjoyed this movie’s structure. There’s something about how Lady Vengeance’s plan is never has any real set backs. The movie starts with her having already planned everything and we as the audience just get to sit back and observe all the pieces fall into place. I guess it is the control that Lady Vengeance displays that is the most unique.
A really terrific movie.
