I just returned from watching this film at class at cal arts and it left me without many words to say. Sorry that this review is all over the place.
This is a film to not watch lightly, it is dark, it is honest, and it doesn't give you answers. I have to disagree with the two neg. comments. The violence in this movie is not just towards women or children or is it looked well upon.
This is a film that tries to look at Men or Violence of men in a post war France. These men all are human, but are not able to deal with their beasts.
The acting in this film is amazing. All in the cast pulls from themselves real characters and real emotions. I never felt like these were actors instead they seems to be these people.
I have to give a lot of credit to the little girl she was just amazing. She held this movie together with her beautiful performance.
This movie is one I recommend highly, but be warned, it is not a movie to just go see and not think about, there is a lot to think about in this movie, and like I said there are no answers given, no morals, no understanding to take from it, but there is a lot there.
An added note.
This movie was made by a women and while it might be hard to see how a women would make a movie with so much violence towards her own sex it is not hard
to see why she choose to in the end because the women rule in this kind of violence needs to be shown.
Don't look away.
