Italian film critics gave director Park Chan-wook's blood-soaked thriller, "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance", an average of three stars out of five at the 62nd Venice Film Festival.

According to Italian daily "CIAK", which was published during the festival, the film received as many as four and as little as two stars from the Italian press and movie critics.

"Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" completes Park's revenge trilogy, which began with "Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance" in 2002.

The latest movie is about a woman's complex plan to get revenge on the man who duped her into going to prison for 13 years for a crime that he committed.

Meanwhile, the Italian press saved its highest praise for "Good night and Good Luck", directed by Hollywood star George Clooney.

The Venice festival, which opened Wednesday, will come to a close Saturday.
