Beautifully strange and compelling
1 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went into this movie thinking it would be in the same vein as the 1990 adaptation of "Misery" by Stephen King, but there's practically no resemblance at all, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Bandaged is essentially about a 17-year-old girl, Lucille (convincingly played by Janna Lisa Dombrowsky) who has been sheltered from the outside world by her over-protective father, Arthur (Hans Piesbergen), who just happens to be a skilled surgeon.

Lucille loves poetry and wishes to be released from her "prison" to attend college and further her poetic studies but her father refuses. Feeling alone in her own home, Lucille attempts suicide but only succeeds in disfiguring herself.

Enter Susanne Sachsse as forty-something nurse Joan Genova, who Arthur hires to be Lucille's convalescent aide and to assist him in reconstructing Lucille's scarred face. There is an immediate attraction between Lucille and her caregiver and the rest of the film tastefully explores the trials and tribulations of lesbianism, isolation, despair, cadaver experimentation, etc. in an isolated Gothic manor.

All-in-all, Bandaged is a beautifully-filmed and very well-written movie with excellent acting from the entire cast.
