A Truly Perverse Film
9 April 2021 | by kmkraftSee all my reviews

PRINCESS has to be one of the most perverse films I have ever seen. I can't even talk about it without wanting to retch.

I gave it four stars for the four main actors, who were outstanding, especially Shira Haas, who, amazingly enough, was 19(!!!) playing a 12-year-old entirely convincingly. Incredible. When I finally learned her birth date, I honestly didn't believe it at first. And what an incredible actress she is!!!

But the story, the themes, the situations depicted in this film make me wonder at the depravity of some people who would not only dream up such perversity but participate in making it.

I won't spoil anything. I'll just say that this film if for degenerates in my personal opinion. I would have turned it off halfway into it, if I didn't have a personal code of finishing what I start.
