Left me thinking- excellent
28 June 2015 | by laurautgeSee all my reviews

If you wanna get all your beliefs shaken, watch this movie.

This is a story of two points of view, daughter and father confronting each other, in and ideological fight, were none of them wants to give up. She gets is raped by a gang, and then the movie really starts.

The interesting thing about this film is that most of the people probably agrees with the opinion of the father, but the main character in this film is her, so we can see through her eyes a different view about the world. The dialogs between she and her father are really good worked out. They build up realistic, psychological identity to both of them.

The actors are really good, even in the small characters. This is a movie for people that is looking to see a beautiful piece of human conflict.
