A failure
28 February 2003 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews



Oscar nominated 'La venganza' fails IMO because i can see the real origin of the conflict between the two antagonists principal characters. Then, all the discussions that they have seems forced. The movie tries to embrace too many topics, too. 5/10.
