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

Middle Class manners disappear under strain
17 July 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Coming in at 83 minutes I can recommend this a decent investment in time. It is a standard thriller with some nods towards sexual, family and class politics and the story though never rising to great levels nevertheless holds the interest as two women become involved in an increasingly bitter struggle following the theft of one's dress from a clothesline by the other. Coming from a middle class Australian background it is interesting to see middle class Australia as the canvas this story is told on. Though not a great film, it nevertheless hits the modest mark it aims for- certainly I enjoyed it more than the average big budget overblown levithian that is usually thrown at the screen these days.
