Storyline

In this dark, gritty, mean-spirited, but well-made comedy-drama, Veronica (Sandra Oh) is an superficial, entitled housewife dealing with her home life. Ashley (Anne Heche) is a self-obsessed, misanthropic, artist dealing with her career and her life partner Lisa (Alicia Silverstone) who wants to raise a baby. Veronica and Ashely's paths cross at a party hosted by Veronica's husband, which the two cynical woman's long-buried rivalry comes to the surface which leads to a brutal cat-fight where Veronica ends up in the hospital in a coma. After two years, Veronica emerges from her coma to learn that both her husband and teenage son are dead, and she is broke with no friends or family. On the other hand, Ashley has become a successful and wealthy artist now married to Lisa. Veronica blames Ashley for her downfall, and after another confrontation which leads to another savage cat-fight in a vacant lot, Ashley is the one to end up in a coma and is revived after two years to find her own ...

Makes "The Duellists" look like a child´s play.
22 January 2018 | by axapvovSee all my reviews

I think it was Kapuscinski who wrote "war is but a series of revenges with an untraceable origin", then there´s Gandhi and his famous "eye for an eye and the world will go blind". Some might despise this film for being such an obvious allegory but it´s just too rich. It might lose some balance at times between its despicable characters and their meaning but nonetheless, it does work on both levels, personally and globally. A tight structure allows the film to expose its point with sharpness and confidence. It´s able to settle years of war debate in a 30 seconds piece of dialogue. It goes from social critique to symbolism to downright comedy in a matter of seconds, totally in control.

Comically, it works, oh yes. There´s something oddly funny about two people grudging obsessively over the years. I think "The Duellists" had a lot of unintentional humor. This one embraces the absurd concept. It ironically glorifies violence featuring ridiculous punch sound effects and it never gets too close to the character´s misfortunes. It´s a comedy, first of all.

Conceptually, it stays neutral, and that´s no joke. Aggresions and affronts are equaly terrible on both sides. That is extremely important not to lose its validity. One can argue that Catfight has a few missteps but it´s certainly not clumsy. Better than that, it´s absolutely hilarious.
