Reviews for Slalom ( ) 720p

IMDB: 6.9 / 10

Really!!

I couldn't watch past the first ten minutes.

Creepy male instructor asking a child to undress and then asking about her menstrual cycle.

Not for me.

The easy way

Sport again as the background of a personal improvement that actually hides a certain despotism. Sexual abuse disguised as infatuation comes to light in this story of a young woman trying to achieve sporting success. But the theme, necessary and interesting, cannot hide a sense of what has already been seen, of a narrative construction in which the intentions are above the construction of convincing characters.

Uncomfortable but important

Stunningly cold cinematography coupled with the isolated setting really exemplifies themes of helplessness, isolation and control. It may be disturbingly intimate at times but this helps the film explore the subject matter like no-one has done before. You really have to work hard but the pay off is waiting for you. But not if you're American
