A poor, poor, poor man's ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOOS NEST
23 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

Watching this film makes you wonder what they could have made of it were it not a cheap TV movie. The rough plot of: woman gets assaulted by father-in-law, develops depressive tendencies, gets put in hospital for her "protection and treatment" and is kept there and "tortured" for quite a while!!, : is midly engaging but the sensationalist treatment of the subject leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Occasionally breaking into farce, where the hospital orderlies set upon the "heroine" with an almost sadistic sneer on their lips. Fear is the only reaction that the makers were looking for.

Having had some second hand "experience" of this type of mental illness, I can tell you that this would be a realistic film were the human race starring in a cheap, sensational, "made for TV" movie.

For a really thought-provoking take on the treatment of mental illness watch "one flew over the cuckoo's nest" and one of the few real-life films made about enforced incarceration.
