A loan shark is forced to reconsider his violent lifestyle after the arrival of a mysterious woman claiming to be his long-lost mother.

 

South Korean master Kim Ki-duk returns to form in an offbeat tale starring Cho Min-soo -- who is bound to be a best actress contender -- and Lee Jung-jin.

Pulling out of his creative tailspin that stretched from Arirang through last year’s self-produced Amen, Korean festival favorite Kim Ki-duk is back in fighting form in Pieta, an intense and, for the first hour, sickeningly violent film that unexpectedly segues into a moving psychological study. Though the appreciable ending will be what festival juries remember when the prizes are being handed out – and female lead Cho Min-soo is bound to be a contender at Venice – it’s not an exaggeration to say there’s not a single pleasant moment in the film’s first half, and most Western audiences are going to find this very tough going. The Venice press screening elicited extremely mixed reactions.
