Sympathy for Lady Vengeance is a 2005 South Korean film from writer-director Park Chan-wook and the third and final film in Chan-wook's acclaimed Vengeance Trilogy, following 2002's Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and 2003's Oldboy. The film focuses on Lee Geum-ja, a beautiful woman who earned a national celebrity status following her imprisonment for the murder of a young boy. While in prison, Lee Geum-ja established a reputation for kindness and a newfound religious outlook, earning her early release from prison. However, the cold, calculating Lee Geum-ja has other plans in mind. Years ago, a serial killer named Mr. Baek forced Lee Geum-ja to confess to the murder of the young boy. If she didn't comply, Mr. Baek would kill her young daughter. Now, finally free from her sentence, Lee Geum-ja begins a bloody quest for vengeance against the deranged child killer that put her behind bars for thirteen and a half years. Sympathy for Lady Vengeance is a thrilling conclusion to Chan-wook's trilogy, featuring actress Lee Young Ae in the title role.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 91

    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    "Old Boy's" vivid star Choi Min-sik plays a terrible schoolteacher -- yet another damned soul in Park's inflammatory, inimitable movie inventory of hell on earth.

  • 70

    Variety Derek Elley

    A wildly inventive, highly cinematic director's showcase that looks likely, at least in the West, to enthuse fans of Asian -- especially Korean -- genre movies more than general auds.

  • 40

    The New York Times

    A convoluted hodge-podge of time frames, subplots and bit player back stories.
