My personal favorite of the Vengeance Trilogy..

Amazon link:

The cinematic flair and narrative surprises that marked Park Chan-Wook's Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and Oldboy continue in this third and concluding part of the director's thematically-linked trilogy of revenge. Intense and inventive, the film follows the progress of beautiful, impassive Lee Geum-ja (Lee Young-Ae) after she's released from prison having served 13 years for the kidnap and murder of a young boy.

Once on the outside, she hooks up with some former cellmates, a preacher who thinks she's an angel, the detective who originally arrested her and the daughter she gave up for adoption, gathering around her all the people needed to carry out an elaborate plan of revenge. Her target is kindergarten teacher Mr. Baek (Oldboy star Choi Min-Sik), while her weapon(s)-of-choice are unexpected and highly personal. This is striking and ghoulishly entertaining stuff, a highwire act poised between horror, tragedy, comedy and exploitation. With the aid of Oldboy Director of Photography Jeong Joeng-Hun, who employs some neat tricks and brings a vibrant beauty to the dark proceedings, Park ensures there's never a dull moment.

Hot, See also I'm a cyborg but that's ok by the same director.
Its hard how to rate thsi film. OldBoy is the one that attracts all the attention as it has more action and themes that are likeable. The film is very Korean ofc, but Park is a genius director so everything is beautifully shot as well as a reat soundtrack. Its a complicated film and you need to have an open mind to watch it, but for anyone who likes world cinema, then its a great watch, thought provoking, well acted and i'd say one of his best films. the subject matter might make some people a bit squemish, but if you have seen parks other two films in the trilogy then you know what to expect.
click, buy! Thanks! Heat added.
Most beautifully put together of the three, imo, too. Watching it again recently (on DVD) there seemed to be very little on-screen violence, what there was was kept out of frame and implied (still disturbing, I should add) - maybe they've censored it!
Cheers op.. Bought this and also mr vengeance which is the same price..
Hot! Old Boy is the king, then this (although this is technically better in a lot of ways), then Sympathy :)
