Park Chanwook’s Sympathy for Lady Vengeance at TIFF’s Summer of Seoul

Lady Vengeance is a perilous venture into the psychology of a woman pursuing her personal sense of justice — without ever finding salvation.

Lee Geum-ja (Lee Young-ae) has been imprisoned for 13 years for allegedly kidnapping and murdering a six-year-old boy. With her fascinating mixture of evil wisdom and naïveté, she wastes no time in winning over her cellmates’ sympathies; all the prisoners become instrumental in the scheme Geum-ja has meticulously drafted for her future as a free woman.

This film will be introduced by Reel Asian’s Artistic Director Aram Siu Wai Collier.

Content advisory: explicit violence, sexually suggestive scenes.
