Overview
Park Chan-Wook's 'Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance' is the precursor to 'OLDBOY' and the first of his celebrated "Vengeance" Trilogy. It is a disquieting, brutal but nonetheless rewarding, multi-layered tale of love, loss and revenge.

A deaf-mute (Kang-ho Song - 'Shiri') is desperate to save his sister's life, but can't raise the money for the kidney transplant. Out of desperation, he and his terrorist girlfriend kidnap a wealthy businessman's daughter in order to raise the cash, only to find that the cost of their actions will have to be paid in torture and pain.

An uncompromising look at the grim reality of black market organ trading, radical terrorist organisations and merciless killers, 'Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance' is a truly outstanding example of Eastern film-making as its most extreme.
