Miss Violence


Only after a few days I understood the meaning of certain choices made in this Greek film that has won a couple of awards at the Venice film festival.
This film tells a terrible story of family abuses, but does so with a extremely quiet narrative, with rhythm and framing meticulously defined. Style that at the first view can be found boring, too static, but now I appreciate it.
The film begins with the explosive event of the suicide of an young girl. Then it starts the slow discovery of the truth which corresponds to the same atrocious path that all the victims of family violence, are obliged to follow. They see the most obvious certainties to crumble to make room for the daily nightmare, like a storm after a sunny day.
A difficult subject, narrated without too predictable images or easy drama.
