Storyline

Manu and Nadine lose their last tenuous relationship with main-stream society when Manu gets raped and Nadine sees her only friend being shot. After a chance encounter, they embark on an explosive journey of sex and murder. Perhaps as a revenge against men, perhaps as a revolt against bourgeois society, but certainly in a negation - almost joyful in its senseless violence - of all the codes of a society which has excluded, raped and humiliated them. Controversial for its violence and real sex scenes: a vividly nihilist road movie set in France. Written by H. G. Ziche <hgz@ehess.fr>

Nadine: [after the two women murder a man] Fuck, we're useless. Where are the witty lines?
Manu: We've got the moves, that's something. We're not that bad, I think.
Nadine: Noooo. I mean, people are dying. The dialogue has to be up to it. Good and crucial, like!
Manu: We can't write it in advance.
Nadine: You're right... That's totally unethical. Let's grab some drink.

Pointless violence: the great revolt against society?
9 August 2005 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

The movie is about women who get raped by punks and then begin a killing rampage across France. They are from non-white origin too, this is supposed to be a ,,candy" in the film. You know non-white women kill man, this turns feminists on..but in reality they kill women too, and besides what is the point killing a man you don't know and did you nothing wrong? Is this ,,revenge on the bourgeois society"? The punks who raped the women were also ,,rebells". It is a revenge only on human values, because they exist, and some people are just to unexperienced to understand the importance of these values. The french director woman intended this movie to make people disturbed. This what she think to be art. It is pity that art finally reached this end, to exist only for haunting and annoying people while claiming to revolting against ,,oppressor- bad -white -patriarchist-christian society". This revolt thing could be a joke. Acting is bad, as the pictures -because of the small budget claimed the director. But there is no plot also. The absence of moral and normality, and the popular french (de Sade-type) s/m doesn't justify the making of this movie. People used to say about this movie: it's so real. No. It isn't real at all. I wonder if any actress in the film no anything about firing weapons, real firefights or real (and no porn-movie) violence. It is not a revolt...If it is, it a revolt only against taste.
