Winner of the Golden Lion at the 2012 Venice Film Festival

Winner of the Golden Lion at the 2012 Venice Film Festival, PIETA is the acclaimed film from the celebrated and controversial Korean director Kim Ki-Duk (BAD GUY; SPRING, SUMMER, FALL, WINTER … AND SPRING; 3-IRON).

In this intense and haunting story, a loan shark living an isolated and lonely existence uses brutality to threaten and collect paybacks from desperate borrowers for his moneylender boss. He proficiently and mercilessly collects the debts without regard to the pain he causes his countless victims. One day, a mysterious woman appears in front of him claiming to be his long-lost mother. After coldly rejecting her at first, he gradually accepts her in his life and decides to quit his cruel job and seek a decent, redemptive life. However, he soon discovers a dark secret stemming from his past and realizes it may be too late to escape the horrific consequences already set in motion from his previous life.

“This is a grisly fable that never goes where we expect it to. And it has some important things to say about both revenge and sacrifice.” — Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
