feminist trop fest
This is a strange movie, not one male character is likable! The father is over the top mean to everyone and the son is much the same and bosses his sisters around..another man attempts a rape.. maybe there is nothing new here as there have been many movies similar.. however the extent of the emotional cruelty displayed by the men is unsettling and unbelievable.. Giorgi (director) tries to make us all feel sorry for the women in this movie but somehow it actually works against her by pushing it too far. the little 'Nina' (first 30mins) is however the best little actress I've seen in a long time - especially note her consoling her mum in the bedroom when Muti gives her the drawings.

as a side note: the grandparents from both sides are less than average actors. two of them in fact look straight at the camera in 3 different scenes. the rest of the cast is quite good.

verdict.. rent it, don't buy it.
