4º – I Saw the Devil (Jee-woon Kim, 2010)After his wife is brutally murdered by a serial killer lethal, a man will seek revenge at any cost against the killer. Another pearl of South Korean cinema on this list, ‘I Saw the Devil’ breaks with the common standards of films with this theme, reversing roles between the central characters, resulting in a frenetic pace transposed to the viewer.
3º – Nocturnal Animals (Tom Ford, 2016)In the plot, after receiving the new romance from her ex-husband, a woman will realize that the details of the story of the book are linked directly to her own life. ‘Nocturnal Animals’ is different from the rest of the films on this list, highlighting the figure of revenge in a veiled way, choosing to work with a story that is divided into two fronts.
2º – The Virgin Spring (Ingmar Bergman, 1960)Allocated in the 14th century in a Swedish province, the film tells the story of a naive young woman who ends up being the victim of a group of criminals. We will gain the substance of the plot when, unknowingly, criminals will seek refuge in the house of the victim’s next of kin. Ingmar Bergman’s masterpiece, ‘The Virgin Spring’ is a film that disturbs by virtue of its heavy and little rewarding plot. Here, we will see what the human being has to offer, explaining the most terrifying virtues of our species.
1º – Lady Vengeance (Chan-wook Park, 2005)After spending time in prison for a crime that would have hit her country, a young woman is released after several years at the expense of exemplary prison behavior. However, all the delicate dress of the woman is undone when she has access to the most basic compendium in the world, starting a journey behind revenge against the person responsible for his arrest. ‘Lady Vengeance’ is a work that takes advantage of a unique aesthetic quality to guide the exacerbated events of its plot. A film that requires some attention and a stomach on the part of its spectator, with, nevertheless, an end that rewards brilliantly all the way trod. Another very interesting fact of this film is his tribute to the second placed of this list, catching the whole idea of a family getting revenge with its own hands.
