Arrow Video Club presents: The Villainess (2017)
Deptford Cinema has teamed up once more with leading independent entertainment distributor Arrow Films for another season celebrating both dynamic new cinema and classic and cult films restored to a new level of quality, including landmark titles such as Cinema Paradiso (25th-anniversary re-issue), Donnie Darko (15th-anniversary re-issue) and Hellraiser (30th Anniversary re-issue).
Exploding onto the screen in a kinetic flurry of hyper-stylised action, The Villainess is a stunning female-led vengeance film that draws its inspiration from western classics including Nikita and Kill Bill...
Sook-hee (Kim Ok-bin, Thirst) is a trained assassin who takes revenge on the men who murdered her father in a breathtaking opening sequence. After losing consciousness she awakes at the National Intelligence Service who recruit her as an agent to undertake confidential missions. Initially refusing, Sook-hee soon realises it is her only method of escape, until she is assigned a new assignment that changes everything.A crazy excess of South Korean neo-noir/martial arts action ensues!
