Park Chan-Wook’s The Vengeance Trilogy hits Arrow Video this December ( @arrowfilmsvideo )

The Vengeance Trilogy, the lauded revenge films directed by internationally acclaimed Korean director Park Chan-wook (The Handmaiden). This collection presents Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy and Lady Vengeance, with stylish special edition packaging featuring newly commissioned artwork by Justin Erickson. Park Chan-wook’s visually stunning masterworks of revenge are presented with a massive array of extras, including the feature-length Oldboy making-of documentary, Old Days.

Sympathy for Mr Vengeance tells the harrowing tale of a young deaf-mute man, Ryu, who kidnaps a wealthy businessman’s daughter in an attempt to extort money to pay for his sister’s kidney transplant. A terrible accident sets the child’s father on a fateful path of revenge. 

Oldboy tells the grisly story of Oh Dae-su, a normal man inexplicably imprisoned in a grim hotel room-like cell for 15 years without knowing his captor or the reason for his incarceration. Eventually released, he searches for answers and retribution.

Lady Vengeance tells of Lee Geum-ja, a model prisoner serving a sentence for a murder she did not commit, who plots a dastardly revenge against the real murderer when she gets out.
