Confess… you like it… confess.
18 May 2008 | by (the Mad Hatter's tea party.) – See all my reviews

Yep, that's right. No shame about it. What begins… True story… aye. Yes its one of those. Anyhow for a sub-genre that's pretty much rough around the edges and doesn't hold back on its draw-cards (sleaze, violence and sex). Michele Massimo Tarantini's Italian Women-in-Prison entry 'Women in Fury' (which was shot on location in Brazil) doesn't have that ultra-cheap cloud and rancid feeling, but shows a competently handled, well-paced, story focused (oh my and it's interesting!) and more often stylishly photographed exercise. That aside, it still doesn't cop out on the trashy essentials like cruel torture, cat-fights (there's a lot!), foul cussing, sexual domination, gratuitous nudity and some bloody violence. It's packed with plenty of cheap, raw and gritty thrills within its sweaty environment, but it's not drenched in unpleasantness. There's a little skill behind it all, although it's no masterpiece of its sub-genre, it still registers as one of its most entertaining. When it wasn't concentrating on the conventional aspects, it tags along with a doctor trying his best to get out Angela (the dashing girl who finds herself in prison with everyone having their eyes on her, after taking the fall for her brother) and then it turns into squabbling jungle adventure when a group of women prisoners scale the walls and escape. The script was better than I thought, but it had its cheesy moments and quips that I just couldn't take seriously. No kidding. The ending couldn't be anymore vapid. The music score is an overwrought and clunky mess, but never too distracting. Suzane Carvalho is capable in the lead role and truly is easy on the eyes. You can see why everyone wants a piece of this fresh meat. There are modest turns by Henri Pagnoncelli as the kind-hearted prison doctor and Leonardo Jose's corrupted head prison officer. The rest of the enthusiastic performances fit the buck. A solid WIP film.
