Aanrijding in Moscou

Christophe Van Rompaey Belgium, 2008

RadiantFlux's rating of the film Moscow, Belgium

The implicit sexism - a woman isn't complete without a man, no matter how bad either of two she has to chose from - bothered me. The casual dismissal of wife beating (i.e., putting someone in hospital for 2 weeks is apparently not such a bit deal) was particularly disturbing. Ultimately the main character came across as whiny and weak - which ultimately I found more sad than enlightening.
