Movie Info

Directed and written by Jacques Doillon, Raja centers around a bored, middle-aged Frenchman, Fred (Pascal Greggory), and his decision to employ a small group of women to care for his garden. Before long, Fred becomes enamored with 19-year-old Raja (Najat Benssallem), one of his employees. Despite her innocent appearance, Raja is physically and emotionally scarred -- an Arab orphan, she was repeatedly raped and forced into prostitution at a young age. Fred becomes determined to seduce Raja, but the language barrier is a serious problem and Raja is confused by many of Fred's efforts. Though Fred's interest had began as little more than a game, he eventually finds himself in the midst of a dangerous obsession.

An interesting story plot. Good movie.

It's not that this isn't a quality film it's just really slimey watching the older, more powerful, and uglier man trying to take advantage of that girl.
