So yeah, this is the rather disturbing little French film that I watched the other night. It’s quite intense right from the word go,never lets up with its levels or violence and overall shocking moments. It’s definitely not a film to watch if you are in a bad mood or depressive state of mind as there are literally no happy moments in this film.

It follows the story of Lucie and Anna who have been friends since childhood. Lucie escaped from a mysterious prolonged torture as a small child and befriends Anna in a home for children. 15 years pass and Lucie goes out to seek revenge on the people who held her captive. What follows is an absolute roller coaster of emotions, violence and sadistic torture. Now I have seen a lot of shocking films but this one is right up there with the most shocking of them. It’s extremely intense and in your face.

For all its shockingness, this is actually a really well made movie. The performances are incredible and must have been so demanding. You really do feel for the poor people who are put through it in this movie and once you have seen this movie I guarantee that it will stay with you for a few days. Unless of course you are emotionless!

I think I will watch something a little happier next hehe

Yeah so, I’ve been pretty busy lately. Not only am I back to work, but I have been giving nearly all my free time to playing Guild Wars 2. It’s an amazing game and I havent watched a movie for weeks! Well until tonight that is! And I will review it in the next couple of days, but I will say that the film I watched is one of the most brutal films I have seen. I am hoping to get back into catching up with the insane amount of movies that I now have in my to watch pile. In fact I will not be buying any DVD’s for the forseeable future. It’s a hard decision but I want to try to save some money and something has got to give. Anyways I have 100 plus to watch so my watching wont be slowing down any time soon. Once I have watched them all I will go back to buying again though. Anyways toodles – Want a clue to what film I watched tonight?

Its French!
