Marina Antunes [Celluloid 04.18.18] France thriller

Writer/director Coralie Fargeat made a splash on the genre fest front last year with Revenge.

Her feature film debut stars Matilda Lutz as Jen, a young woman enjoying a getaway with her boyfriend. When a couple of his friends turn up, the trip quickly takes a turn for the worse when Jen finds herself being hunted by the men across the desert.

The trio make the mistake of leaving her for dead only to find themselves hunted by the young woman.

Women's revenge stories are not new but few are actually told by women so in that respect, Revenge has a leg up in that it is both written and directed by a female filmmaker.

Cinematographer Robrecht Heyvaert and Fargeat capture this story with super saturated colors which gives the desert an even more hellish appearance which fits in nicely with the hunter-turned-hunted theme and gives the movie a unique look.

Revenge will continue to play festivals until it opens on May 11.

Recommended Release: Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2
