REVENGE REVENGE

THRILLER, HORROR / FRANCE / 2018 / 103 MINS / R18+

FRENCH AND ENGLISH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

Feminist body horror doesn’t come more pronounced than Coralie Fargeat’s remarkably self-assured debut feature, Revenge, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival at the height of the Weinstein scandal and #metoo movement, and well and truly turns the ‘male gaze’ in cinema on its head.

It’s a weekend away at a desert hideaway for a group of wealthy, married and unsavoury men, although Richard (Kevin Janssens) has brought his empty-headed fling, Jen (Matilda Lutz), along for the ride. When his friends can’t control their lust, things become murderous. However, for these men – who’ve been used to getting away with everything – it looks as though they’ve finally met their match.

They say revenge is a dish best served cold but, in this case, Fargeat presents us with a hyper-saturated colour palette of bright sunlight, hot desert vistas and endless buckets of blood. Despite its ultra-violence, Revenge does not fail to mesmerise, right through to the big finale that makes all the gore so very worthwhile.
