Review

Even after the Me Too movement that created ripples across Korea and the world, our society is rife with cruel violence and unfair perspectives against women in the name of social conventions and the punishments are too lenient. Seven female Finnish filmmakers made this film against such social conventions. The camera tells the story of six women and their sufferings on a street, workplace, a bar, a court, and even on stage. The inequality and objectification of women, as well as violence against women, prevalent both in the East and West—when will these terrible “habits” be eradicated? [CHUN Jinsu]
