Raw plus Short Film
Director: Julia Ducournau. Starring: Garance Marillier, Ella Rumpf, Rabah Naït Oufella. France/Belgium 2016. 99 mins. French with English subtitles.
Following in the footsteps of her entire family, shy 16-year-old Justine, an animal-loving vegetarian, enrols in veterinary college. Entering a seductive world of boys, drugs and all-night parties, she is confronted with a moral dilemma when she must eat a raw rabbit liver as part of an initiation ritual. She devours the meat, and is soon overtaken by unusual cravings. Julia Ducournau’s impressive debut feature is a highly accomplished, bold and bloody exploration of womanhood. Based around Marillier’s terrific, no-holds-barred performance, Raw has echoes of both Catherine Breillat’s explorations of female sexuality and the body horror of early David Cronenberg. The tense coming-of-age story has a mordant streak of dark humour and moments of brutality and gore. These may prove disturbing even for seasoned horror fans, thanks to the work of FX maestro Olivier Afonso.
