Product Description:

Named Best Film at the Deauville Asian Film Festival, SYMPATHY FOR MR. VENGEANCE is the first movie in director Chanwook Park's revenge trilogy, which also includes OLDBOY and SYMPATHY FOR LADY VENGEANCE. Ha-kyun Shin stars as Ryu, a young deaf mute with green hair and a job at a smelting factory. His ailing sister (Ji-Eun Lim) is in dire need of a kidney, and when the doctors cannot find a suitable match, Ryu, who has just been laid off, takes his severance pay and all his savings to a shady black-market organization that will take out his kidney so his sister can use it. But he is tricked, and soon convinced by his anarchist girlfriend, Youngmi (Doo-na Bae), to kidnap the four-year-old daughter (Bo-bae Han) of factory president Park (Kang-ho Song) in order to get enough money to pay for his sister's legitimate transplant. But things don't go as planned, leading to gripping, violent, and bloody battles as both Ryu and Park seek to gain vengeance for the wrongs done to their families. Director Park has taken great care to develop strong, believable characters who are driven by heartbreak to commit acts they never dreamed they'd be capable of in this emotionally wrenching drama.
