A suitably harrowing, close-quarters account of the mass rape committed by Serbian rebel fighters during the Balkan wars of the early '90s.
The story is told with a studied spareness. Dialogue and characterisation are minimal, the violence graphic.
The plot never quite adds up and starts to drift aimlessly in the closing stages.
In her unblinking recounting of the story, director Wilson displays admirable restraint in the face of horror.
An unforgettable central performance, but could be more dramatically engaging.
Its unblinking look at sexual violence and degradation makes for exceptionally uneasy viewing, but it's a film that really should be seen.
It's an audaciously truthful film, made by a film-maker of considerable skill without an inch of prurience, and totally from a woman's point of view.
A gruellingly tough drama about the nightmare of the Bosnian war, based on a 1999 novel by the Croatian writer Slavenka Drakulic.
It's the opposite of a wallow, but risks muffling the impact of this woman's experience too thoroughly.
Impressively directed and superbly shot, this is an emotionally powerful, harrowing drama with a terrific performance from newcomer Natasha Petrovic.
Wilson deftly uses cinematic means - widescreen framing, sound, focus, PO V - to convey her protagonist's ordeal, eliciting exceptional acting from Macedonian newcomer Petrovic.
Only for those with a strong stomach, this Balkan gruellingly tough drama based on a 1999 novel by the Croatian writer Slavenka Drakulic, gives an unblinking look at sexual violence and degradation which albeit being exceptionally uneasy to watch, it is a film that really should be seen.
