Trivia

Selected by the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg in Fall 2006 to represent the country in the Foreign Language Film category at the 2007 Oscars. However, AMPAS determined that since Luxembourg's input had been primarily financial and not artistic, the film was therefore not eligible and was disqualified. The film was a majority Polish production (directed by a Poland-based Venezuelan director, set in Poland and Germany, filmed in Polish and German with a Polish lead actress). It had also appeared on Poland's Oscar shortlist that year, when it was beaten by Retrieval. See more »

It's a great film, and an unforgettable experience
7 January 2011 | by rashmitharaoSee all my reviews

The film has many messages to convey. Besides that, it stretches the viewer's ability to empathize with the central character. It tests the viewer's sense of humanity, sense of justice, and his/her levels of tolerance. The viewer is tortured, is made to think beyond his comfortable life, his family, his friends etc. and is forced to think and feel for girls like 'Justine', girls who are forced to forego their self-identities to live under the identity of 'Justine'. Justine symbolizes the millions of innocent girls born free, born to live normal lives but are kidnapped, trafficked, blackmailed and forced into prostitution. Such girls gradually lose the sense of self, lose the sense of identity, sense of being human and begin to believe that they deserve it, that this is what their destiny is, this is what they are made of. How is it justified? Why should such a thing happen to anyone? Is there an escape? Where is hope? Who am I? What am I? If I escape, who will I be? Though the film may not offer answers to these questions, but through the character of Pauline it raises these questions in an effectual manner in the viewer's hearts, making 'Your Name Is Justine' an unforgettable experience.
