Spotlight on our cinema
CANADA , Ontario | 107 minutes | 2020
A cottage, a lake, two couples, two sisters. Deep in the forest, a series of confessions sets the stage for conflict and revenge. Despite one incredibly brutal (if scrupulously composed) scene, Violation is far more than a tired old exercise in eye-for-an-eye. Deeply disturbing, it’s a complex psychological thriller for our times that deftly explores manipulation, consent and betrayal as it pits the visible against the unseen. A début feature where extreme emotional violence jars with the apparent tranquillity of nature. Madeleine Sims-Fewer is remarkably intense in her dual roles as director and star."Madeleine Sims-Fewer and Dusty Mancinelli pack a profound gut-punch with their debut feature." Variety"Elusive, hallucinatory and confronting, this strong feature debut is a tale of two sisters, where what happens in the wild must eventually come back home" Through the trees"Violation is a stunningly beautiful film" Badfeelingfilm
