A rape is an insult
13 October 2002 | by KottarainenSee all my reviews

A lady is brutally raped by a man, who has harassed her before. She is badly treated by almost everyone; the doctor, the police..Even her brother thinks only revenge, not his sister´s feelings. Since there were no eye-witnesses and the rapists wife lied about the comings and goings of her husband, the rapist is declared as "not guilty". The lady´s brother and husband decide to take law in their own hands, but things go badly wrong.. This subject is touchy and this film clearly shows how a victim is treated almost as a whore. She and her feelings are finally forgotten and the revenge becomes the most important matter. The plot is fair, but it could have been much better. Sort of interesting, but not a very good film.
