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>

Manu's friend: [after Manu and her friend are brutally raped]
[crying]
Manu's friend: How could you? How could you have let them do that to you? How could you do that?
Manu: It's nothing to what they could have done. At least we're still alive.
Manu's friend: How could you... how could you say that?
Manu: I can say it because I don't give a flying fuck about their faggot dicks anyway! I've taken others inside me, so fuck them! It's like if you park a car in the middle of the city, you don't leave your treasures inside if you can't stop people from ...

The power of controversy
1 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Right. Take away the gratuitous sex, show the sex in a way that is not designed to make people recoil in disgust, edit it in a way that make the audience aware that they are just about to have sex, are having sex or are being raped without going into vivid detail and what are you left with?! NOTHING! just a violent poor example of feminism I have never seen. When my film studies lecturer compared this to LOTR for some reason, and declared it better! I almost lost my voice arguing with her, obviously 2 totally different films but still..I ramble...wtf is up with this film, there are no positive aspects; 1. Acting- poor, even though I don't speak french I know this 2. Direction, Mise en scene, editing, location, sound, cinematography. etc.- Substandard, below par, just plain poor, could be shot with a *beep* Philip's camera from 10 years ago, from my back garden with some randoms off the street and still be better.

3. Message- not powerful, a very simple message with no depth and full of pretentious nonsense about 'girl power'.

May all trace of the film be burnt, re-burnt, the ashes put into a plastic pot, melted, sculpted into a figure shape then burnt again and thrown into a volcano, then if it becomes possible at any time, have the volcano destroyed (maybe by Godzilla? or mechagodzilla?) Sorry to rant, I just plain hate this film.
