A brilliant and moving film that tracks the life of a country girl who spends her life trying to better herself but falls prey at every turn to the men who rule and sexually abuse her from childhood onwards. Great direction, all on location, which made the lighting and camera angles incredibly difficult. This sounds like a depressing film but it is far from it as the "insect woman" attempts to fight and overcome every obstacle put in front of her. Extras in the form of a very informative booklet and an interview with the director which is very good indeed.
