Powerfully disturbing film
28 January 2018 | by nando1301-1See all my reviews

This film is not for the prudish or weak-hearted: it contains the most graphic rape scene in Western cinema, and tells the story of a young girl who becomes involved with a Danish gangster while on vacation at the Turkish Riviera.

The acting is superb, but the film is brutal in its honest depiction of violence (physical and psychological). There is not a lot of blood and gore, but the few violent scenes are so realistically filmed, that it has more impact than all the be-headings and slashing in Lord of the Rings.

People complain about the lack of recognition received by female directors... Well, here is an example of a high-quality film made by a woman director with a female main character. Yet, it is so frank that it is disturbing. Definitely a work that will elicit many discussions about power games played among men and women.
