Not for everyone
11 March 2015 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I usually try to watch as many films as possible that get a nomination at Cannes, and The Slut was such movie (even though it didn't win anything there). This is basically one person production: created and directed by the Israeli filmmaker, Hagar Ben Asher. She also acts in it.

The story is about a single mother, Tamar, who lives in a rural area with her two daughters and works at a chicken farm. She's obsessed with sex and provides sexual favors to various men in the village. One day she meets Shai, a veterinarian, and starts a relationship with him.

The best I can describe this film in one word is.. weird. It uses strange symbolism and is very minimalistic in its approach, from screenplay to acting. The cinematography is actually quite impressive for something with virtually no budget. It attempts to make a character study, but spectacularly forgoes nearly all characterization. Something tells me it was done on purpose, but something like this can potentially leave the viewer completely detached from the characters. The end result may therefore seem like nothing more than cinematic expressionism of sorts.

Having said that, I kind of liked The Slut. It's uncanny and raw. Uncanny because while being set in a boring environment, it manages to produce a surreal scenario (at least from where I'm standing). It's sad, disturbing and yet strangely fascinating. It should be obvious that this movie isn't for everyone. Do not expect casual entertainment. Do not expect some sort of porno either. It does have graphic sex scenes and some reviewers even screamed "unsimulated sex". The lead actor categorically denied this, so I'll take his word for it. Not that it really matters. But if graphic sexual content offends you, please do everyone a favor, and DO NOT WATCH this. Otherwise, it's a pretty unconventional and interesting piece of indie film-making.
