They Call Her One-Eye


Time Out says

A cruel film, indeed. Rendered mute when raped as a child, the late-teenage Madeleine (child-woman Christina Lindberg) is abducted, injected with heroin and forced to work as a prostitute. Biding her time, she secretly learns about guns, unarmed combat and fast cars, then wreaks revenge on her captors and clients. Yet this self-consciously shocking movie lacks the courage of its would-be exploitative convictions. The grubby hardcore 'inserts' are alienating, the slo-mo violence and jarring, discordant soundtrack too calculated to achieve any visceral or emotional impact. It's as if director Bo Arne Vibenius (wisely using a pseudonym) was embarrassed by his own artful nastiness. Tarantino completists and fans of Abel Ferrara's Ms .45 might salvage something.
