The new trailer for Kim Ki-Duk's 2012 Venice Golden Lion winner and South Korea's Oscar entry "Pieta" has arrived, along with a poster by Mondo artist Jay Shaw (Mondo's sister company, Drafthouse Films, is distributing the film). Jo Min-soo gives a knockout performance as a woman claiming to be the long-lost mother of a lone shark (Lee Jung-jin) who collects bloody paybacks for his moneylender boss. He literally takes limbs in payment.

The new trailer for Kim Ki-Duk's 2012 Venice Golden Lion winner and South Korea's Oscar entry "Pieta" has arrived, along with a poster by Mondo artist Jay Shaw (Mondo's sister company, Drafthouse Films, is distributing the film). Jo Min-soo gives a knockout performance as a woman claiming to be the long-lost mother of a lone shark (Lee Jung-jin) who collects bloody paybacks for his moneylender boss. He literally takes limbs in payment.

This must-see for any cinephile who can handle the violence is a driving nasty propulsive drama with unexpected emotional confrontations: between ruthless torturer and hapless victim, vengeful survivor and quarry, and would-be mother and son.

The film hits theaters May 17, but will be available via iTunes and VOD April 12.
