And then, suddenly released, he is invited to track down his jailor with a denouement that is simply stunning.

1001 Movies ... my own version (2000's) (122 movies items)

" Notes: At some point, I had finally seen the other movies in Chan-wook Park’s ‘Revenge Trilogy’ and, to be honest, I was slightly disappointed by ‘Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance’ and even more by ‘Lady Vengeance’. Indeed, I was expecting a lot from these flicks because I was so blown away by ‘Oldboy’ which was the 2nd instalment in this trilogy. I remember it very well, when it was released, it was critically heralded, especially at the Cannes Film Festival and after hearing so "
