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
'Miss Violence' is dark, the topic of child sex abuse direct. The last time I felt so much dread swell in me was whilst watching 'In Syria'. Part of it is knowing that somewhere, in every country, a similarly terrible thing is undoubtedly happening. That I felt so emotional is credit to 'Miss Violence' being an effective movie.
