No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA:
Directed by: Park Chan-wook
Starring: Ha-kyun Shin (Ryu), Bae Doona (Ryu’s girlfriend), Song Kang-Ho (Yu-sun’s father), Bo-bae Han (Yu-sun), Ji-Eun Lim (Ryu’s sister)
Country: South Korea
Language: Korean (Eng Subs)

Plot – Spoilers:
This was the first in Park Chan-wook’s Vengeance Trilogy, the others being, Oldboy and Lady Vengeance.

A deaf-mute Ryu labours away at a brutal factory that leaves him senseless by the end of day. The one thing that keeps him toiling away, is the money he’s been able to save up for his sister who needs a kidney. But desperation soon sees Ryu slip into the worlds of organ trafficking and kidnapping.

The film continually flips who or what Mr Vengeance is. And in the hands of the Korean master of violent humour, this is a mustwatch for his fans.

    Gospodin what a wonderful trilogy. Almost as good as Kitano’s Outrage. Love these Asian approach to the violence. It always has a touch of romance in it.
