Each scenario depicts actions, dialogue, incident, behaviour and circumstance that the lead characters might have wished didn't happen, ranging from extreme violence through awkward social situations to mild embarrassment. The central character (and possible dreamer of this whole what-if story) emerges as Alex (Monica Bellucci), who suffers the worst in a very hard-to-watch rape sequence in an underpass. Semi-improvised, the scenes all have attack and power as themes, with later/earlier conversational sequences that suggest life isn't all sexual assaults in the dark, showing equal cinematic imagination with the horrors. Arguably, this is not a film most would subject themselves to twice, but it is something that stays in the mind for days after viewing, sparking far more ideas and emotions than most wallow-in-nastiness pictures. --Kim Newman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
A technically well-made film, however, viewing may be hard going due to content. Please check the narrative before watching.Published 1 month ago by Mr. Wc Shacklock
Brutal film! Contains uncomfortable scenes so watchers beware! The actual filming is chaotic which brings alive the scenes. Loved it.Published 2 months ago by TrueHipHop

The film is well made, however the Rape scene is truly sexually violent, hats off to the actors in this scene for the realism it relays to the viewer. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Mr. M. A. Smith
