The Misandrists begins with Volker, a young man with an injured leg, stumbling through the forest, pursued by the police and their tracking dogs. When he emerges from the woods, he sees two young women, Isolde and Hilde, frolicking in a field not far from a large old country house. When the beautiful young Isolde realizes that the handsome young man is in trouble with the law, she convinces Hilde to help her hide him in the basement of the house, which happens to be a school for wayward girls. Isolde forces Hilde to agree to keep the young man's presence in the basement hidden from the rest of the household, especially from Big Mother, who runs the school, which is composed of twelve other females: four teachers and eight young women rescued from the streets. It is a lesbian separatist stronghold. Isolde secretly nurses Volker back to health, but does not let him know that the school for girls is also a front for a quasi-terrorist organization called the FLA - the Female Liberation ...

THE worst
5 February 2019 | by r_liSee all my reviews

I was at the premiere of this movie in TBLB last week, and REALLY tried to sit through it, convincing myself that it was purposefully awful maybe for satirical reasons, and the director may turn this monotone into something different afterwards.

I was absolutely wrong.

Walked out after 1 hour of this worthless crap cause, you guessed it, nothing changed - I should've done that much earlier on. I tried thinking of one single film worse than this one, and couldn't come up with anything.

You think the book "Fahrenheit 911" is meaningless? Try watching "the misandrists". You think a satire certainly has to be fun and playful? Let Bruce lebruce change your mind. This is the first satire made to be even more unbearable than the subject it, supposedly, poked fun of, which makes you wonder: why doing satire at the first place?

Colourless and cringeworthy dialogues, plastic symbolisms and plots... given that the word movie stands for motion pictures, it is absolutely terrifying to see a movie with no motion depicted in it. Everything was stand-alone with the most robotic interaction in between. Sometimes the director tries to bring some "clever" metaphors and symbolisms, but the delivery is, as it's always been, plastic, abrupt, and irrelevant to the plot.

I want my money back.
