The comically but altogether disgustingly unrealistic amounts of blood dripping from characters both male and female, soaked into the walls of a remote mountainous getaway vacation home and the vast desert landscapes that occupy the surroundings, are absolutely sure to be a major talking point for Revenge (the feature-length debut from French writer and director Coralie Fargeat), but this is rape vengeance with an artistically minded cinematic mean streak. The closing moments are bound to be some of the most intense all year. This is a primal display of female empowerment and revenge that is sure to somewhere have even Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman erupting in applause.
Director: Coralie Fargeat | Cast: Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz, Kevin Janssens, Vincent Colombe | 108 mins
Three wealthy married men get together for their annual hunting game in a desert canyon. But this time, one of them comes along with his mistress, a sexy lolita who quickly arouses the interest of the two others. Things get dramatically out of hand when the young woman, left for dead in the middle of desert hell, comes back to life and the hunting game turns into a ruthless manhunt.
