A great thriller
14 March 2006 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Män kan inte våldtas is a great film from the Finnish director Jörn Donner. A slowly, but powerfully proceeding thriller of a woman who wants to revenge to her rapist by raping him. There are lots of scenes in this film, which don't contain dialog at all. Those are a great example of Donner's skills to tell the story with pure images. The film is very well written and the actors in leading roles (Anna Godenius, Gösta Bredefelt) are simply just magnificent.

Although the actors are mostly from Sweden and the film is totally spoken in Swedish it is still filmed in Helsinki, Finland.

I highly recommend this film to people who like intellectual thrillers.
