Das Ereignis (2021). Das Ereignis: Directed by Audrey Diwan. With Anamaria Vartolomei, Kacey Mottet Klein, Luàna Bajrami, Louise Orry-Diquéro. An adaptation of Annie Ernaux's eponymous novel, looking back on her experience with abortion when it was still illegal in France in the 1960s.
“This film is about the horrors of abortion or the lack of possibility to have one. u0026quot;I want to have a child later, but I donu0026#39;t want a child instead of the lifeu0026quot; the film heroine states at one of her doctors appointments. But being a young woman in the 60s meant exactly that- you could forget a free life and career if you became pregnant. The film told the story very close to the main character, tight cinematography. This is good for intimacy and really increases the horrors of her several attempts at aborting the fetus. At the same time I feel like the film misses a bit out on showing us the world around her, itu0026#39;s not a queens gambit like costume piece… if it werenu0026#39;t for the old cars it could have also been set in the 90s/2000s in terms of costumes and styling I feel. But thatu0026#39;s also what gives the story a lot of actuality because it makes you think directly of the horrible situations woman go through today in countries where abortion is forbidden.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI left the film with a feeling of uneasiness and needed to take a hot shower at home.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGood acting in general, nudity without voyeurism which I greatly appreciated.”
