Imdb rating of 1.9 whilst the critics are saying its amazing hm.Started watching "Cuties" to see what the fuss is about. wow, switched it off half way through due to being afraid of having the front door booted in and going on a register.
I don't really understand how it even got through certification, pretty much from the first scene it's basically kids jiggling about in front of the camera without much in the way of clothes on and by kids I don't mean teenagers, 11/12 year olds dressed at 18 year olds out on the pull.
Very uncomfortable to watch, which I would hope was their aim...trouble is, the message got delivered by Yodel. Maybe it's a language thing? I watched the dubbed version, which is never ideal but my French is weak and I cba to read subtitles.
To be fair kids have been shown off like this for decades. That bernet kid that was killed in the usa Shows that. Maybe the film is made to make you feel uncomfortable to show that these kids are being exploited and shouldnt be in those situations.The bit that made me turn it off was where the kids get caught by a couple of security guards who then ogle them doing their dance, the director making sure the viewer gets a good look at an 11 years old's arse, stomach and tits.
Very strange film.
There is an underlying theme of the film I suppose but the movie doesn't really concentrate on it enough, the main girl is brought up quite a strict Muslim and I guess she is trying to break free of that, or something.
