Pieta is a South Korean movie that won top prize, the Golden Lion, at the Venice International Film Festival, as well as countless awards at other film festivals, including several for its leading actress, Jo Min-su, and is showing as part of the Portland International Film Festival. The film has been noted by critics for its extreme and often sickening violence, apparently typical of director Kim Ki-duk. Pieta nonetheless has also been heralded for its portrayal of Kang-do, played by Lee Jung-jin, a loan shark seemingly gripped by pure evil, but who undergoes something of a transformation when a woman (Min-su) claiming to be the mother who abandoned him long ago appears in his life. Also showing 2/11 at Regal Lloyd Center.
