I must start by saying: Thank you for making such a good movie. It is all about a women caught up in a faith that she really couldn’t help. One could think she was naive to get into this mess, but she was anything but naive. This is indeed a story about a women, a girl, who is all but a victim according to some American norms of a stupid blonde in some parody movies like Scream or something like that. This is a story about a strong, smart, intelligent women, not just mentally strong, but also intelligent. She is fast and rapid and really understands her environment fully. The story is complete and well done, as many French movies are. It is a story about someone framing you for something you haven’t done.
So I give this movie a strong four out of five big stars. I seldom give five stars, only a few movies over the years have gotten five from me. Solens rike (Empire of the sun) by Steven Spielberg is such a movie that I give five to, just so you understand what I think is a good movie.
If you feel like seeing a thriller with action, realistic portraits of people and women, then this is the movie for you. Lay all the blonde comments back into the closet and enjoy a smart, intelligent women that is woven into a strange reality. The main characters are played by Eric Cantona and Karine Vanesse. Katrine Vanesse makes a good performance of this strong and intelligent women.
I support the actions of freedom from the group Femen. They are a group of women that protest against what is wrong in equality. They criticize power. All power should be investigated by the population all the time. Critic is a weapon against misusage of power. Also how the country handles their actions against groups like Femen clearly show how the government works. Originally Femen protested against prostitution and exploitation of women in Ukraine. The Femen group uses radikal ways to get attention to their cause. One form of action they use is beeing topless.
Some must walk in front of others in order to get change. Higher respect for human rights is a must in Ukraine, as well as other countries. All countries need to work on it. Even my “perfect” country Sweden. We are not equal yet. When i.e. a man kan dress in women clothes without beeing transsexual and clothes no longer are labled female or male, that day we can talk about equal rights. I think this will happen far away in the future. It must happen. In a world anyone should be able to dress without thinking about gender. If you like a glittering shirt as a man, you should be able to buy it without people thinking you are gay. If you like a certain type of clothing you should be able to wear it without thinking about what gender the clothing communicates.
