This is DEFINITELY not a film for everyone. That said, if you are in the mood for a grueling, horrific trip through the small intestines of existential dread, I highly recommend this film.

It is not only a perfect example of New French Extremism, but one could argue that it explodes the very concept of 'torture porn' and almost makes you, as an audience member, complicit.

This is not a film you watch, this is a film you GO THROUGH.

A stomach wrenching movie. It's really well done and it really makes you think.
