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
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...
