Very disturbing movie about obsessions., 18 January 2006
Author: michel-crolais from France

The subject of this movie is the report of the obsession that put one young woman to have very special relationship with her own body. Esther is a thirty years old executive who works in an opinion poll. She is on a good way to have very good responsibilities in her job. She has an affair with a young man, Vincent, who loves her, and they are on the point of be married together. One day, Esther goes with her friend Sandrine to a dance party, and she severely injured herself one of her legs, but she don't perceive that immediately. Later, when she sees her leg's injury, the wounds fascinate her. Then she begins a very strange game with her body and her blood that leads her into self-mutilation. That pushes this young woman into a physical and social downfall with more and more mutilations that leads her toward madness. This movie is very fascinating, but almost at the limit of tolerable. Very well acted by actor-director Marina de Van, the movie seems to me to be very interesting in spite of his theme's difficulty.
