Kim Ki-duk's Pieta Gets U.S. Release Date (Updated)

Posted June 21, 2013 04:34 PM by Webmaster

Image EntertainmentImage Entertainment and Draftohouse Films announced that it will release on Blu-ray celebrated and controversial Korean director Kim Ki-duk's latest film Pieta (2012), starring Jo Min-soo, Eunjin Kang, and Kim Jae-rok. The film, which was selected to represent South Korea at the 85th Academy Awards, will be available for purchase online and in stores across the United States on July 23rd.

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. Winner of the prestigious Golden Lion Award for Best Film at the 2012 Venice Film Festival.

Already ordered the import. Nice to see the film getting a US release but I'll take the limited edition import instead.

I received the import about a week ago, but i'll be getting this, regardless. I'm positive the subtitles will be better on this release, and the extras will most definitely have subtitles whereas the import doesn't. Soo, why now own both?
