Rape MeJune 28, 2000
Two young women, marginalised by society, go on a destructive tour of sex and violence. Breaking norms and killing men – and shattering the complacency of polite cinema audiences.
Release Year: 2000
Rating: 4.4/10 (10,144 voted)
Critic's Score: 35/100
Stars: Raffaëla Anderson, Karen Lancaume, Céline Beugnot
Manu and Nadine lose their last tenuous relationship with main-stream society when Manu gets raped and Nadine sees her only friend being shot. After a chance encounter, they embark on an explosive journey of sex and murder. Perhaps as a revenge against men, perhaps as a revolt against bourgeois society, but certainly in a negation – almost joyful in its senseless violence – of all the codes of a society which has excluded, raped and humiliated them. Controversial for its violence and real sex scenes: a vividly nihilist road movie set in France.

Did You Know?
The stars and a director are adult film stars.
I've thought about taking a jump or burning alive. Self-immolation is pretty pretentious. After we finish in the Vosges, let's do the jump without the bungee.
a sexual and violent experience….but a very nice one
Maybe it's because I live in Holland and have a very open mind to sex,
and well, maybe not to murder but I was not that shocked.
Of course the rape scene was a bit hard and did not leave much to your
imagination, but the rest…. Me and my girlfriend were just entertained
the rest of the movie.
I just read some other 20 user comments and I was in fact shocked by
Prudish americans and british telling you that it is shocking and garbage
and so on. A 5.0 average makes also clear that most of the people are
filled with tabboos.
Big erections and mindless sex…. so what? shooting people up there arse?
surely I'd prefer that compared to what happens to the guy that rapes
marsellus wallace in Pulp Fiction.
Indeed this was a low budget movie and the camerawork was perhaps of poor
quality but it suits the pic. As a student indeed a search for reasons and
meaning and I find it hihgly irritating that some people complain about
things left unexplained. What are you? Can't you think and maybe even
for yourselves? Does everything have to be explained?
We both liked it and surely I understand this is not a movie for everyone.
think more of it as an experimental piece of work, seek your own reasons
what they are doing, enjoy this wild ride and if you persist in having a
monumentuous storyline, oscar performances and so on, and you are not
specifically entertained by x rated sex, lots of blood and the socalled
'holes' in this story then….
Just don't watch this movie!!!!
The backside of the DVD or VHS gives plenty of clues that this is a
controversial movie and when you have an open mind and like these kind of
movies, i recommend it.
We give it a 7.0
