Extremely poor
28 March 2007 | by alicespiralSee all my reviews

Usually my favorite movies are the True Stories kind as put out by Odyssey. But this is one which has nothing going for it. From what I understood its about a woman who attends a sort of Primal Therapy course and suddenly starts remembering things from her past about her own father-who just happens to be one of the town's prominent citizens. So far its like fiction yet for what its worth it happened. But so what-the world is full of men who abuse their own daughters and its something which I reckon deserves castration. The danger now is the old urges may have returned and there's a grandchild who at one stage is seen trying to kill herself! Whether it happened or not the movie made about this event is done as a "by the numbers" one.There's no drama there's nothing only the feeling you have just been bored stiff for nearly 2 hours
