  • lou.'s rating of the film A Trial for Rape

    An incredibly shocking documentary, if you think that was the very first time a film such this one was shown on the Italian public TV, right after the evening news. Attorney TinaBassi was a real kick-ass legal feminist activist: here she comments cruel images, showing how verbal abuse is the most violent shaming for the victim. Brutality isn't just sexual but refers to every case the strongest humiliates the weakest.
