A young woman's quest for revenge against the people who kidnapped and tormented her as a child leads her and a friend, who is also a victim of child abuse, on a terrifying journey into a living hell of depravity.
Best friends Marie and Alexia decide to spend a quiet weekend at Alexia's parents' secluded farmhouse. But on the night of their arrival, the girls' idyllic getaway turns into an endless night of horror.
Raised as a rigorous vegetarian, doe-eyed freshman, Justine, is sent off to the reputable Saint-Exupéry Veterinary school, where the black sheep of the family, her big sister, Alexia, is already studying. There, as she leaves the familial shelter, Justine abruptly moves into a mad new world of strange school traditions and vicious initiation tests, and before long, she will have to chew over her unshakable herbivorous beliefs. More and more, as Justine is descending deep into her uncharted animalistic tendencies, an unprecedented and equally unquenched craving for raw meat will replace her repulsion, transforming her into something she would have never expected. But, now that Justine's corporeal awakening is finally complete, is there a point denying her hunger?Written by
The raw chicken that Justine is eating out of the fridge is actually sugar. Garance Marillier said about the scene that while it didn't disgust her from chicken, it did disgust her from candies for life. See more »
Close to a Good Idea, but Just a Mediocre Carying out With a Bad Explanation of Itself
I did like how the movie started. It was pretty tense for about half an hour, but after some rites, we all asked ourselves which university would be like that? Where are the teachers, why is there clearly no lesson? An university of just throwing parties. One of the main problems is, that the story of the main characters seems so unrealistic that we could only laugh about that movie. At some points it got some suspense, but the rest is just ugly gore. I think if they would have put some more thinking how to show and clever explain what happens to the characters, it would have been a better movie. 'Grave' does look a little bit like vegans made it to shock meatlovers. That's ok, but they should think of a better story next time. I recommend it for vegans. It must be the horrifically for them.
