Storyline

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

A drama that you'll remember as a horror movie
15 December 2020 | by wickedmikehamptonSee all my reviews

'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.
