Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance is a brutal little film. It's set in South Korea, and follows a mute trying to arrange an organ transplant for his dying sister. When things go wrong in this film, they go very very wrong.
This is part of a three part trilogy exploring revenge. Old Boy was the first I saw (and it's a stunner) and next up is Lady Vengeance. No idea how I happened into these in the ordr they were made. The stories aren't intertwined - just the theme.
Sympathy felt very very Shakespearian to me. I give it a 7.
