Revenge (2017)

Director: Coralie Fargeat. Cast: Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz, Kevin Janssens, Vincent Colombe. 108 min. Rated R. France. Thriller.

Three men abuse and leave a young woman for dead in the middle of the desert, and she returns for retribution. That simple. You may say the fact that every man in this world is evil, or that the heroine’s major pain for half the movie being a phallus-like structure sticking out of her body, tells volumes about the female director’s stance towards men - but it’s not hard to predict with its minimalist cast, stunning cinematography, tense screenplay, occasionally humorous gore, and especially opportune timing during the #MeToo movement, this little film will become an icon of our times.
