Julia Ducournau’s stunningly brilliant, multi-international award-winning first feature takes the coming-of-age movie to a uniquely new and dazzlingly different level.
Everyone in Justine’s family is a vet. And a vegetarian. She is a brilliant and promising student. When she starts at veterinary school, she enters a decadent, merciless and dangerously seductive world. During the first week of hazing rituals, desperate to fit in whatever the cost, she strays from her family principles when she eats raw meat for the first time. Little does she know she will soon face the terrible and unexpected consequences of her actions when her true self begins to emerge…
There is much to chew on – in every sense of the word – in this allegorical tale of a woman’s awakening to the pleasures of the flesh. Sisterhood and sibling rivalry are turned inside-out as body image and identity are explored in an incredibly sharp, sensitive, engaging and, it needs to be stressed, gory, multi-layered gem.
