One of the most beautiful and strong movies in Italian cinema
1 August 2000 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

A blow in the stomach..."Il Branco" is an incredibly dramatic and crude psychological insight about "group rape". The movie tells the story (unfortunately a true one) of a couple of German girls, kidnapped, raped and beaten to death by a gang ("branco" means "wolf pack" in Italian), a group of ruthless "desperado" that live and "think" as a single being. The movie is a strongly realistic one, but with some powerful symbolic imageries, and revolve around the single identity of rapists, in the trying of expose what could ever push a human being to act in such an inhuman way. Actors are really great and fully believable as characters. You shouldn't miss this one. Anyway, be warned, since this is one of the most disturbing movie ever. If you ever wondered how painful and terrible a rape could be to a woman, let this movie rape your soul...You won't be the same ever again. Promised.
