I Like Horror Movies
In one scene early on in the film it is shown that she has been hit, bruises cover her body. Then a normal moment when the uncle tells the girl to take a bath the girl refuses after we find why she refuses.
The films filled with shocking moments, moments when children pretend to be adults and moments when adults don't act like adults but build rage machines. August was once a priest sworn to the cloth but now he's trying to start a normal life with his niece, though the rage from his sister's death makes him loose it, and eventually start to systematically kill off the people involved in killing his sister.
This is done with mixing real life super 8 footage of him and his sister shot by August when they were younger. Starting with the death of their parents to the last days after Mia has been born. The mix of Super 8 and Animation leaves me with a feeling that the footage is true, and the animation is the fantasy of the artist after the death of his sister. Making my insides creep and crawl.
This film isn't a comfortable ride, it makes the viewer uncomfortable as often as possible and this isn't done as a shock effect but as a way of showing the damage done to the girl Mia. In the end its violence and perverted sexuality is inflicting damage to a 5 year old's existence and what that will bring up when the safety of the children around us are forgotten for petty selfishness.
I recommend this film to others, but they must understand with film deals with extreme situations, including language, violence, and sex all involving a child.
I Highly recommend this film to people who are interested in independent films. don't expect mainstream revenge stories to have any parallel to the brutality of this film.
The animation is rough, but it compliments the subject. Do not watch this movie if you don't like to watch anything relating to the subject of porn, that is almost entirely what this movie is about, plus some good old fashioned revenge :)
