It had an interesting story, and the acting was generally good, but the movie is nowhere near as disgusting or shocking as what the critics said, it was filled with clichés and bad characters and it was boring.

None of the characters ever did anything intelligent throughout the whole movie, it was very frustrating. It isn't a particularly bad movie, it's just not very good. Expand

An extreme desire for blood and flesh!

Totally unexpected. I had no idea what I'm about to watch. Because usually I do small research of films I watch before the click play. I did not know it was even a French film or a horror. But it was not actually a horror in a sense. Seeing the initial set up, I thought it would be about a freshman medical student. Then things turned out strangely. Like it was decades ago when I was young, I have felt uncomfortable for those intentional film. For this, it felt all real. As the contents, I disliked them. But the film succeeded if that's what it's intended to give to its audience.

It lived up to what the title meant. But on the other hand, I thought it was making fun of vegetarians. You usually won't find many vegetarians in Europe, but this film's topic was bizarre. Because you know someone who has never consumed meat in his entire life, but then when he begins this new habit, it is like completely going out of control. It's not just one, but two from the same family. Something was very clear, that one not knowing the differences. Because they were never before used to it.

Justine is all set to join her sister to practice to be a veterinarian. Coming from a pure vegetarian family, she has to go through some of college traditions. From the beginning itself, it did not go well for her. It affected her health and body. A drastic change in a short period of time, forcing her to uncontrollable desire. Then on one accidental situation, it turns even worst. Ultimately, a conflict between the sisters arise. It takes them to unexpected paths and finally how it all ends were revealed with many uneasy events.

I have seen many films like this, but this one was a stand-alone from all of them. I'm not saying it is a masterpiece, but they have got all things right just as they wanted. Obviously this is for grownups, though not all of them can watch without feeling disgust. Some of article, reviews says, people left the cinema hall halfway through. A very challenging film to watch. You might think I'm exaggerating for a simple cinematic performance, but that's what I really experienced. Only when you give it a try, you might get it.

A bit confusing as the story progressing. Like what kind of universe, it is set in. Because whatever happens around Justine, seems nobody caring. Where were the professors! So many doubts. It's just what it is. An imaginative perspective, what if kind of situation turned more uglier. But if you analyse it properly, the only issue was the cannibalism. Not that one showing a desire in consuming meat all of sudden. So, I appreciate the writing, direction and performances, but definitely it is not my cup of tea. Probably for most of you as well.

So this is not for all, but selected viewers. Films can be anything, only we have to assert whether we liked it or not. The maker knew what they were doing, the kind of subject they have undertaken for their film. Often a film like this hits the screen, and makes some noise among the film critics and film goers. I don't know on what merit one should decide to watch it. Because it is not for entertainment, nor an art, nor a message film. But I still think it is worth a watch. Just be aware of what you are going to watch.

6/10

The basic narrative through-line is fuzzy, meaning the drama doesn't fully satisfy, but "Raw" boasts captivatingly fearless performances and a surfeit of collected scenes that individually hold attention with a queasy, vice-like grip. The faint-hearted will do well to avoid it but for all the glee "Raw" takes in shock value, rest assured it's a film conceived and executed with obvious intelligence, morbid wit, and a crooked sort of humanity. Just be sure you eat first. Expand

Looking at the Rating for this Movie , i think its realy overrated. Dont get me wrong, it wasnt a bad Movie but at around 20 Minutes in it its pretty clear what will happen and it does so with maybe 1 little surprise. Acting was pretty decentLooking at the Rating for this Movie , i think its realy overrated.
