First-year student Justine (Garance Marillier) quickly learns that veterinary school is not what she had envisioned; an animal-loving vegan, she is persistently hazed by older students, including her sister (Ella Rumpf). After being forced to eat raw meat, Justine descends into a dizzying metamorphosis that channels the body horror of Cronenberg and psychological distortion of Polanski in equal measure and with stunning results. “Picture CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST as an emotionally driven coming-of-age movie … Cleverly written, impressively made and incredibly gory.” - Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter. In French with English subtitles.
