An extremely well-crafted, highly controversial film of great importance.

Mantis is a very controversial film, that is filled with the passion
and truth that much of society lacks concerning spousal abuse. Your
compassion for the characters makes you question taboos and stereotypes
found in society. This is a powerful film that has controversial
undertones. I loved this movie and I was lucky to get to see it. There
haven't been too many screenings, but if you do go get a chance to
attend short film festivals, MANTIS is the film to look for. This is a
must-see film if you are at all interested in movies that make you
think "Wow, I can't believe that actually happens". This is one of
those really important films dealing with an issue that people
sometimes find hard to stomach, but honestly, I think that it's about
time that someone actually went out on a limb and tackled this subject.
