Rape of Love (1978) -- Nicole, nurse in Grenoble, is raped one night by four men. Deeply scarred, emotionally and physically, she thinks she will never recover from the trauma. Following a friend's advice, she decides to file a lawsuit. Bellon's film deals with rape.It's probably her most successful movie,since it was made at a time women were (I hope it has changed)often reluctant to tell their family and friends about what happened. Y annick Bellon succeeds in making us feel her disgust for human bestiality:the rape scene lasts about ten minutes and does not turn the viewer into a peeping tom;her heroine's sufferings are so intense we often feel like looking away. L'amour violÃÂ© may be a dated movie.But things like that are still happening,still in 2005.It's a movie that needed to be done.
