Seriously, I'm 21 now and I still get the chills. I cannot sit through this movie, i have to walk around and take breaks. thats how bad. But I still recommend this movie, because it shows what people were desperate. but as my understanding robbing of the girls were discussed as the people who wanted to led the daughters into a convent in exchange for money to keep up their land. Basically This was scandalous and thank god that I don't live in a time where money is tight.
WARNING. It does contain graphic language and Violence and Scenes
but this movie is good, worth watching, never let someone under 16 watch because they will get nightmares. This movie is available on DVD and I bought mines on Ebay.
