A failure
28 February 2003 | by boudu_sauve_des_eauxSee 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.
