Eeew...what a thoroughly unpleasant film.
A vegetarian becomes a cannibal...well, there's nothing quite like going from one extreme to the other!
It's all just a bit difficult to swallow...what with all the body parts flying around, the throwing up and the equally carnivorous sister egging her on!
Things may have been a trifle more palatable if these sisters were - in any shape or form - likable...oooh, of that they most definitely are not.
It's a beautifully shot film...with some striking imagery. But...the message it leaves...well, let us not to spoil things...but, gay boys should stay well clear of cannibalistic sisters and ski poles!
In Justine’s family everyone is a vet and a vegetarian. At 16, she’s a gifted teen ready to take on her first year in vet school, where her older sister also studies. There, she gets no time to settle: hazing starts right away. Justine is forced to eat raw meat for the first time in her life. Unexpected consequences emerge as her true self begins to form.
