The Seasoning House (2012) – Film Sips

“The Seasoning House” 

For more information follow this link.

This is an intense, violent, and disturbing film about a deaf-mute girl whose parents, along with the rest of her village, are killed and is taken to work as a housekeeper at a brothel.   Sean Pertwee is the villain, militia leader, Goran, in this.  There are some really great scenes that emphasize the incongruity of the horrors that the girls in the brothel are forced to live, and the modern (well, mid-90’s) world going on not far away.

It is a hard one to watch, and really conveys helplessness, fear and oppression through the choice of color, sound, settings, and language choices in dialogue.
