directed by Julia Ducournau, Belgium/France/Italy 2016, 99'
A first year female veterinary student and vegetarian from birth is forced to eat meat during a hazing. From then on, her hunger cannot be satisfied. Rumors that viewers are fainting during this film are a clever marketing strategy, as is the action of one of the cinemas that gave away vomit bags before the show. And while the film is in fact a story about maturing, arising sexuality as well as relationships with women in the family, there is a grain of truth in these rumors. This film is not only a feminist manifesto, but also a very successful combination of European social cinema – which the Dardenne brothers would be proud of – with Cronenberg's body horror.
