Storyline

In Australia, the executive Kate sees a young woman undressing her stolen dress in the swimming pool of a club, and regardless of the contrary opinion of her mate Phil, she decides to steal it back. Later her teenager son Matt is approached by the smalltime thief Rachel, the woman who stole the dress, and after spending some leisure time with her, they go to his middle class house. Soon, Rachel's friend Nick joins them, and Nick ties Matt to his mother's bed while Rachel masturbates him and cleans him with his mother's dress. The abused boy has a trauma, and his mother seeks revenge against Rachel, who returns with her friends, in escalating forms of retaliation until a tragic conclusion. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

"Stupid Thriller" in guise of "Clever & Challenging"
28 December 2001 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is NOT just another ordinary thriller - it's darker, has more behind the scenes, is less polished, has more substance. However, the only way the story could succeed was with some unbelievably stupid plot developments: it seems the script writers have almost totally ignored the possibility of police and/or psychiatric involvement...surely after your teenaged son has been raped, you'd get some sort of professional help!! The film gets sillier and sillier as the mother goes through a mid-life crisis (complete with alcohol and a different hair-colour) and becomes a vigilante seeking revenge for her family... Okay, what WAS done was done well, but it's actually a pretty bad script. Rating: 6/10.
