We’re happy to host four exclusive images from writer/director Kim Ki-Duk’s Pieta, winner of the Golden Lion at the 2012 Venice Film Festival.  The film centers on a lonely and reclusive loan shark who uses brutal tactics to mercilessly collect what he’s owed.  When a woman arrives on his doorstep and claims to be his long lost mother, the man’s dark past is torn open anew.  In his review, our own Patrick Cooper called Pieta, “a challenging tale of revenge and motherly love that knows no boundaries.”

Pieta is available now on VOD and through iTunes with a theatrical release starting May 17th.  Hit the jump to view the images along with the trailer, synopsis and poster from the film.

Check out four exclusive images from Kim’s Pieta, followed by the trailer below:

Here’s the synopsis for Pieta, followed by the film’s poster:

Winner of the Golden Lion at the 2012 Venice Film Festival, Pieta is the acclaimed film from celebrated and controversial Korean director Kim Ki-Duk (Bad Guy; Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… And Spring; 3-Iron). In this intense and haunting story, a loan shark lives an isolated and lonely existence, using brutality to threaten and collect paybacks from desperate borrowers for his moneylender boss. He proficiently and mercilessly collects on 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 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.
