A French film about a young vegetarian, Justine, that is forced to eat raw rabbit liver in a hazing ritual at vet college which gradually transforms her into a rabid carnivore. I know that every time I eat a hot dog I then want to eat someone’s face, so the premise of this film makes perfect sense.
There is a scene where Justine’s sister has her entire arm up the ass of a cow. I can relate to this as I myself have had my entire arm up a cow’s vagina. Artificial insemination. My cousin dared me to do it, and it was weird. As I was doing my thing, the cow shit on my shoulder. Memories. The next scene, her sister is teaching her how to pee standing up then waxes her hoo-hoo. This movie is breaking down so many walls.
Justine first gets the urge to eat people when her sister accidentally gets her finger cut off. The aforementioned finger looks too good to resist so she chomps down on it like it was baby-back ribs from Chili’s. I might try this at Thanksgiving so I never have to go again.
The sister is strangely ok with the imbibing of her finger. Turns out, she likes to chow down on tender pieces of people too. She tries to help Justine learn how to find her food, but Justine just doesn’t want to have any part of it, though withdrawals set in and her tune changes. I’ll let you watch the movie for yourselves to see the scenes with the paint and the carnivorous sex with the gay roommate.
The ending isn’t bad, and I won’t spoil that here either. Somehow, I wanted something more from the movie, but I just don’t know what that might be. Once you are a cannibal, what next? That is a question I would like to have answered more fully at some point. Still: recommended.
