Disturbing and Original
26 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a truly disturbing and beautifully made piece of cinema that definitely goes places where other films fear to tread.

Those wishing to gawp at another cheesy exploiter will probably not find much to enjoy here. There are exploitative elements aplenty, but they're not simply thrown in for cheap thrills. This is a film that delivers a powerful emotional punch if you're prepared to let it work its magic on you.

There was a cut and badly dubbed English version on the "gray market" a while back. Seeing this remastered, correctly framed version with the original soundtrack is like discovering the film for the first time.

Don't miss it.
