It is a pretty graphic movie, but if you think you can handle it, I would definitely recommend it :)
There is a "cultish/religious" element to this movie (as you can probably tell by the title), and the director is a self-described "agnostic". It has sort of a twist ending that stays with you for a while... not in a graphic sense, but in a "makes you think" kind of sense.
It is also a french movie with english subtitles. France has been putting out some real doozies in recent years (e.g. High Tension, Martyrs, Inside, Frontier(s) ).
Hmm, actually, the main plot of the movie is a revenge story carried out by a girl and her friend who were abused as children. The actual abuse is not graphically depicted, in fact, the movie starts off 15 years later, and the abuse is only referenced in the film, but the idea of it is still disturbing none-the-less.
not sure if this turns you off watching or not, but is worth it in my opinion.
That is one of the popular explainations, but I always wondered.... If you knew, without a doubt, that there was nothing.... why would you kill yourself? Wouldn't you want to maximize your time on earth and live as long as you could, since you know for sure that's all there is?
Or did she just kill herself because she realized that she basically wasted her entire life searching for this answer for nothing?
I got Hight Tension in from the library, only to realize I had already seen that. I wasn't wild about it. I can't get Martyrs (not avail), and I watched Inside last night. Wasn't overwhelmed about it -- but mainly that had to do with the subject matter. But wow!, what an incredibly violent movie. Frontier(s) has been in my library queue for a couple of weeks, but still not shown up -- so it is probably lost in limbo somewhere.
