In terms of dealing with violence, two things were a problem for Eva Husson. The first came from the fact that, in the history of cinema, the portrayal of violence against women is often close to voyeurism, sometimes with intense victimization of it. See more »

"The only thing they killed is our fear."
21 November 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

You have here a true, authentic masterpiece in the line of TIMBUKTU or the Tv series BLACK CROWS, but told from another angle. The tale of a bunch of female fighters against ISIS brutality, barbary. Female warriors, amazons of a new kind, women who has nothing to lose, except letting ISIS monsters continue their evil work. That's really a poignant, gripping story about sacrifice, struggle and hate. But also the burning desire to exterminate the indescribable. This story could ahve been a great TV series, so that so many supporting characters may be better described. Coincidence or not, the final part of the film takes place on November Friday the 13th 2015; Black Friday for France, with the Paris and Bataclan killings.
