Darlings! Directed by Ruud van Hemert

  • Wee Hunk's rating of the film Darlings!

    Of course it looks like an exploitation film, what with the choice of the naked lady as the screenshot. The thing is, though, that it's actually a commentary on how people were feeling in the 80s about the previous generation that got them in the war. The parents tried to shove it under the carpet when people wanted answers. Which gave rise to the Red Army Faction. So this is like a metaphor, OK?
