Park Chan-wook's Vengeance Trilogy!Special Engagements Archive

Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance


Buy Tickets

Also plays March 6 in a triple feature with Oldboy and Lady Vengeance.

(2002) dir Park Chan-wook w/ Ha-kyun Shin, Doona Bae, Kang-ho Song, Ji-Eun Lim [129 min]
This ornately constructed revenge tragedy is the first part of Park Chanwook’s thematic “Vengeance Trilogy.” The excellent Ha-kyun Shin plays Ryu, a deaf/mute who is desperate to find a kidney transplant for his beloved sister. To raise some quick cash, he and his girlfriend team up to kidnap an executive’s daughter. But what should have been easy quickly goes south and the film descends into an operatic tragedy of murder and vengeance.

Join us for a free preview screening of Park Chan-wook’s new film STOKER on Thursday, February 28!
