Miss Violence (2013)

An unnerving story about a horrid family drama kept behind closed doors, and an elaborate facade where appearances can be deceiving, and nothing is as it seems.

It's Aggeliki's eleventh birthday, and a well-organised party is held in her honour. All the ingredients of a usual birthday gathering are here: a scrumptious sugar-glazed cake, cheerful music, and the warm embrace of a doting grandfather. However, is any of this real, or is this an elaborate facade? Little by little, as a devastating act of despair unfolds before Aggeliki's shocked family, wolves and lambs alike gradually find themselves lured into an elaborate web of hideous secrets, deceptive appearances, and a frantic downward spiral of lies. In the end, as the sinners' blood-curdling evildoings kept behind closed doors unravel, one can't help but plunge into the depths of the human soul, and the unfathomable secrets within. Written by Nick Riganas

It took me a while to digest "Miss Violence"
4 December 2020 | by stefkarSee all my reviews

My Rating: 8/10

I cant lie, after watching this movie I literally felt nauseous. The psychological and physical abuse depicted in the film is so raw and literal that for me it was really hard to face and watch. I really found disturbing to acknowledge that such deprivation can exist into a human being in such extent, especially when it has to do with family, and the indulgence someone can show to their abuser.

I dont believe this is a film for everyone but I would suggest to give it a try if you think you can take it, as such films, as this one, as much as disturbing as they can get, as much thought provoking they can be...
