Directed by Jung Byung-gil (Confession Of Murder), The Villainess follows a mysterious woman who has been raised as a killer and is recruited to be a secret agent. The cast is headed by Kim Ok-vin and Shin Ha-kyun, who both starred in Park Chan-wook’s 2009 Cannes title Thirst.
Deliriously indulging in the excesses of South Korean action, recalling Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy, The Villainess is a visionary new take on the neo-noir genre and an incredible thrill ride not to be missed.
