blood and substance,
This review is from: Lady Vengeance [DVD] (DVD)
lady vengeance is the third film in director park chon-wooks vengeance triology and what a beauty it is,this film takes the act of vengeance away from the man and puts it in the hands of a gentile woman called miss guem-ja who after spending thirtheen years in prison for the abduction and murder of a little boy decides that she has held the truth away for too long and wants revenge on the real culprit,but it wont be easy,but through her time in prison she acted as a model prisoner and made lots of friends who now released as well can each help her in their own way.
The film is very graceful in places as the mother/daughter story is quite poignant and the lead character is a lady of both demonic and heartfelt actions but the revenge scene here isnt what you might think,there is a different way of looking at it which raises questions,i will say no more other than this is asian cinema at its most original and violent and worthy of attention,brilliant.
