Maybe the most disturbing scene shown in a cinema. Probably.
26 April 2003 | by (Home) – See all my reviews

The film is about a young, pretty, European woman who is hired as a part time teacher in some suburban Mid West town. She is hired to teach sex education and is soon blamed for the local teenagers' sexual activity. Many references are made to a special film made by doctors for doctors. When the town meeting

finally decides to watch the film, a very abrubt change happens (partly due to a bad changeover by the projectionist). We cut to a 16mm film blown up to 35mm and projected on a medium size cinama screen of an actual birth. I've seen

birthing movies before (Mo' Better Blues) but Jesus Christo. Dios Mio.

Extreme Closeup. The film is very old so EVERYTHING is pink. The doctor

uses a speculum. The audience in the cinema is grossed out audibly. It is only the begining. But really nothing any bizarre film buff hasn't scene. Some of the people were even laughing at the people who were grossed out. "oh come on,

that's nothing" They were more right than they knew. A clamp is used on the baby's head. This is inside. A screw is actually turned to tighten the clamp. They are reffered to as "the blades" in the narration. Most of the narrartion goes unheard because at this point the audience is SCREAMING in horror. People

are jumping around and covering their faces. I look back and forth between the horrible screen and the most beautiful girl who is my date. It is our first date. She looks like she is going to cry.

The doctor pulls the baby out with the clamp but can only get the head out. The process is paused for awhile, the head only exposed. I feel like running out of the theater, but realize this film will never get shown again. My morbid curiosity is compelled as is the entire cinema. The doctor continues to try a few times but fails. As soon as the scissors appear, the cinema errupts into mayhem.

Everyone is screaming NO! No no. The rest of the film is blur. there is 5 minutes of epilogue narrative, but noone remembers how the story is wrapped up. The

sounds made by the audience are undescribable. Every girl left the cinema with the same thoughts and were expressing them. "I will never have a baby." A

truly powerful film. I do NOT recommend it. Unless you want to see that.

There are no motorcycles in this film. until the very very end just before the curtains meet.
