    This collection presents Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy and Lady Vengeance, the lauded trilogy of revenge films directed by internationally acclaimed Korean director Park Chan-wook (The Handmaiden).

    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.

    Park Chan-wook’s visually stunning masterworks of revenge are presented in this new collection with a massive array of extras, including the feature-length Oldboy making-of documentary Old Days.
