| Lee Young-Ae shines as Lady Vengeance
Having only just finished watching a marathon screening of Jewel In The Palace, also another Lee Young-Ae vehicle, a few weeks ago in the comfort of my home, I was pleasantly surprised at how flexible this actress could be in her acting skills.

Perhaps it is her plain-faced mien that has not seen the plastic surgeon's knife or the ease with which she looks innocent and then sensual and then psychotic all at once in this film that helped her to put on this character like a pair of pantyhose- sensual, warm, transparent yet opaque.

The twists and themes in the show were also very different and very unexpected. When you think the film is going to come to a close, it walks away from the curtains to take you into an even higher level of movie-going experience.

Sympathy for Lady Vengeance boasts of excellent scriptwriting with dark humor lightening up the otherwise even darker theme of vengeance. The acting from the various cast members were commendable as well as the DP-ing and various subtle yet very effective special effects in the film. The directing was also superb as was the cinematography.

I left the cinema feeling like I had watched my $8 worth and then some. I dun wanna spoil anything by giving away the storyline/ general plot or the very intriguing twists etc. I just hope you will give this film a chance to charm you like only dark chocolate can. When you're done, it will feel like you've just eaten a nice comfy bowl of Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey ice cream. Yummy, Delicious and happy.
